Mr. Farrugia has admitted his side have been given a very difficult group. However, he emphasizes the importance of the ties against fellow minnows the Faroe Islands.
Farrugia acknowledged Malta could win more points against Faroe Islands and noted that the team’s opening match could be crucial.
He told Malta Today:
“In the two matches we played against the Faroe Islands in the UEFA Nations League, we showed that we can hold our own. Our opening qualifier from Euro 2020 Group F is at home against the Faroe Islands on 23 March and that will be a big match for us,” he said.
“We will be giving our all to start this competition on a bright note and hopefully set the tone for a positive campaign.”
