  • Description

    West Germany beat Malta by one goal to nil in their match in Valetta on Sunday (22 December).

    The game was their first in the first leg of the qualifying tie for group eight in the european Football Championship.

    West Germany fielded a team very different form their European and World Championship side and, with the poor quality of the Valetta pitch they managed to beat the Maltese by only one point.

    The Germans have already drawn their away game against Greece and are tipped to qualify for group eight, which also includes Bulgaria.

    SYNOPSIS: Football ... and in Malta on Sunday a West German team -- in white -- beat the home side by one goal to nil. The teams were playing in the first round of the group eight qualifying tie for the European Football Championship.

    The Maltese goalkeeper, Degono, was more than up to the German attackers in this move.

    The pressure on the Maltese goal began to tell and Bonhof put the first goal of the game into the net.

    The two teams continued to press for the advantage ... but goals were elusive.

    The ball did reach the back of the net once more but the goal was disallowed ... one of the German players was offside. In spite of pressure form both sides no other goals were scored and the final score was West Germany one; Malta, nil.
