Zach Muscat: “Most prestigious game to date”

With Malta facing England at Wembley this afternoon, defender Zach Muscat has spoken exclusively to ElWriteBack about his side’s World Cup Qualifier.

The fullback moved to Italy earlier this year where he currently plays for U.S. Arezzo.

Zach Muscat has already impressed for club and country at the age of 23.

The former Birkirkara right back described his national side’s fixture as, “Probably the most prestigious game to date in such a stadium, therefore the adrenaline and excitement will be pumping, but most of all it could serve as a showcase for Maltese talent.”

Malta previously faced Scotland in September as they started their World Cup Qualifying campaign. This fixture resulted in a 5-1 defeat for Pietro Ghedin’s side.

When questioned about the way Ghedin will line up, Muscat said, “The starting line up is left to the coach until the final moments.

“We will use a defensive tactic which allows us to exploit errors and take advantage of episodes which may favour us.”

Zach Muscat looks forward to playing at Wembley

This fixture isn’t just big for Malta as Gareth Southgate will be taking charge of The Three Lions for the first time since Sam Allardyce’s departure as England manager.

The Maltese fullback commented on the opposition playing under a new manager saying, “With their professional status and lifestyle I don’t believe that they will be affected by the news floating around the team.

“We will be prepared for England at their 100%.”
