Anybody ever producing services for football teams will always be pleased when they contribute to a team’s success. This happened when our agency took care of services for Slovakia’s national under-21 team while they were staying in Malta.
Team Slovakia was taking a decisive step forward in its bid to reach the 2023 UEFA European Under-21 Championship, which Georgia and Romania will be hosting. Through our contacts in Malta and it can be safely said as a sports agency in Slovakia that they are ultimately the best anyone can find, we were able to prepare a truly complete service for the national under-21s. It involved transport, training and recovery options, alongside accommodation at the top four-star Seaview Hotel Malta in Bugibba, a city on the northwest coast of Malta Island.
The Slovak team emerged victorious in Ta’Qali, coming from behind 3:1 after the home team scored a goal in the 44th minute. Pokorný equalised at the very end of the first half. Two decisive goals headed in by Iľka closed out the match and Team Slovakia was able to advance by finishing in second place within the group. It was also the best they could do as powerful Spain were the clear winners.
“The team responded quickly after Malta took the lead and scored after a standard situation. Then in the second half the players performed better and substitutes brought the team back,” was how national Under-21 team coach Jaroslav Kentoš summed the match up, expressing his pleasure with the team’s ability to stay mentally strong and eventually turn the game around.
The national under-21s will now play against Ukraine for a chance to qualify for the European Championship. We wish them luck, and with a touch of pride at the thought of us having a role in it.
