Malta registered its first UEFA Nations League Victory, and the first away victory since June 2013, when it won against Latvia 0 – 1 in Latvia.
Latvia had their chances in the first half but Malta pressed towards the end and were rewarded with Borg’s wonderful header.
This was Malta’s fourth consecutive positive result after beating Gibraltar in a friend and a draw against Andorra. This was the first time in 18 years. The players have also claimed their fourth straight clean sheet, something they last managed 20 years ago.
