Devaney opened with a 53 in the first and Goggins followed that up with breaks of 57 and 64 in the second frame. A 60 in the doubles for Malta pulled one back and they then leveled at 2-2 before a 52 by Alex Borg (Pictured) put them in front. Malta then won the match on the black 62-61 to win 4-2.
England were the first team through to the Mens Semi Finals tomorrow morning after they made short work of Belgium this evening in Bucharest.
Nick Jennings opened up with a 69 break against Guy Hendrickx only for Jurgen Van Roy to level the scores at 1-1 with a win over Downing (Pictured).
