Notes

  • Two Missed Penalties and a re-takeRichard Wright faced three penalties during the game, all taken by David Carabott. The first had to be re-taken because of encroachment. Then, the re-taken penalty rebounded from the frame striking Wright on the back of the head and resulted in Malta's goal. Wright then saved a third in the 88th minute.
