Macclesfield Town’s Maltese international, Luke Dimech faces a tough time in the qualification group for the 2010 World Cup.

The central defender, whose highlight from the 2008 Euro campaign will surely be the 2-2 draw with Turkey, may have to pit his wits against some of the best in the world.

Portugal, Sweden, Denmark, Hungary and Albania are the other teams in the group leaving Luke to face off against such stars as Cristiano Ronaldo, Sweden’s Zlatan Ibrahimović and his Inter Milan teammate, Hungarian international Attila Filkor.

However, the end of the Euro 2008 campaign is good news for the Silkmen now their most experiencded central defender will not be away on international duty again for several months.
