It reminds me of the time when I was a player. We had very nice Christmas tournaments; celebrating one day and playing the other day. Now that I’m older and being a coach it sometimes reminds me of those wonderful days.
Here in Malta Christmas is the height of the year. Everybody is looking forward to it and daily life and sports are put aside. But I’m also happy when we can start the 27th with two training days as a preparation for January where we will play a double friendly against Northern Ireland and the qualification tournament in Sweden for the WC 2020.
But first of all I want to wish you Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and sportive 2019!
