Malta only needed a draw to progress but Georgia crushed Andorra 7-0 to finish top of Group 1 due to a better record in direct encounters after finishing on level points with Malta and Faroe Islands.

The Faroe Islands started the match in the perfect manner when Rannva Andreasen scored on the 13th minute. Just two minutes later Milja Simonsen double the lead.

Malta managed to fight back when on the 39th minute Ylenia Carabott found the back of the net to make the score 2-1.

Malta were back in the match just four minutes into the second half when substitute Martina Borg leveled matters.

The thought of Malta progressing to the next round was cut short when Faroe Islands captain Heidi Sevdal restored their lead on the 53rd minute.

Victory was sealed for the Faroe Islands on the 90th minute when Heidi Sevdal scored her second goal of the match to make the score 4-2.

MALTA: Janice Xuereb, Gabriella Zahra (67’ Emma Xuereb), Yasmeen Vella (19’  Martina Borg), Stefania Farrugia, Dorianne Theuma, Ylenia Carabott, Rachel Cuschieri, Shona Zammit, Jade Flask, Charlene Zammit
