Moldova was held by Malta in a goalless draw which served as a preparation for the World Cup qualifiers.
Both coaches sent their best starting eleven on the pitch, but the football level failed to reach any sort of standard.
Both teams were content to play the ball in midfield without showing any urgency in attack. Apart from two rare occasions by Malta, there were not a lot of occasions.
The Moldavian football team had a recent friendly match with Malta which ended in a draw with no goals scored.
It was a drab match indeed and fans are hoping that the next round of friendly matches will have some more excitement in them. Malta has been committed to play a couple of friendly matches in 2016. This match was one of the matches which have been planned. The start was indeed a low key one.

Argentina superstar Lionel Messi reckons that he can better his own efforts at the World Cup 2014 during the Copa America 2015.
The Barcelona star almost single-handedly helped Argentina win the World Cup for the first time in almost 30 years. However, he could not prevent a 1-0 defeat to Germany in the final. Up until that point, Messi had been brilliant without exception. For a player who has won every possible trophy at club level, the lack of a World Cup or Copa America medal is certainly a disappointing aspect.
