Malta national under-17 football team

The Malta national under-17 football team represents Malta in international football competitions such as the FIFA U-17 World Cup, the UEFA European Under-17 Championship, as well as any other under-17 international football tournaments. It is governed by the Malta Football Association. In October 2009, Malta qualified from its group to the Elite Round that was played in March 2010. This success came around following a victory over the Netherlands 2-1 and an 0-0 draw with group host nation Andorra, after having lost the first match against Northern Ireland 2-0. Malta qualified as the best third-placed team.
