Malta’s national football team will return to action with a visit to arch-rivals the Faroe Islands on the 3rd of September.
Their trip up north will mark the beginning of Malta’s UEFA Nations League campaign which was recently revised in light of the COVID-19 outbreak.
The group states will be played in September, October and November. The only changes to Malta’s Group D1 schedule concern match three and four. A full list of the revised fixtures can be found below.

Malta will be playing under new head coach Devis Mangia who will be put to the test when the national team faces equally-matched the Faroe islands. The last time the two countries met was on 15th October 2019 when Malta suffered a humiliating 1-0 defeat at home.
Speaking at a press conference earlier this year, Mangia said that this matchup will provide Malta with the opportunity to amend past defeats.
The national team will also see off the year with several friendly matches played on the 7th and 8th of October and 11th and 12th of November.
