Malta's national football team have finally landed in the Estonian capital Tallinn, 24 hours after a canceled flight left them stranded in Amsterdam, the Times of Malta said.

The team is due to play a friendly against Estonia in the southwestern Estonian resort town Parnu as part of the run-up to their Saturday's 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign opener against Scotland at home.

Malta's players and staff were forced to spend the night in Amsterdam after being told that their connecting flight to Tallinn had been canceled by the carrier Nordica due to a technical issue with the aircraft.

The Maltese contingent spent the night at the Hilton airport hotel, with coach Pietro Ghedin keeping players focused with a pre-dinner pep talk.
