It's been quite a hectic few weeks for both Prime Minister Joseph Muscat and Opposition leader Adrian Delia, but the two political leaders put all that behind them for 90 minutes last night to cheer on the national football team.

Luke Dalli, a close friend of the Prime Minister, uploaded a photo onto his Facebook wall today of Muscat and Delia smiling together at the Ta’ Qali football stadium.

“It’s not just about red and blue. #unitedformalta,” Luke posted.

Both Muscat and Delia have publicly backed a non-toxic style of politics, with Delia in particular saying his career as a lawyer has taught him that two men can club each other in the courtroom but can share a coffee afterwards.

Unfortunately, this show of unity wasn’t enough to spur on the Maltese national team, which slipped to a disappointing 1-1 draw with the Faroe Islands, ensuring it finished its inaugural UEFA Nations League campaign bottom of its group with no wins.
