The second part of the triple internationals sees Gibraltar take on Latvia in a friendly; we caught up with midfielder Anthony Hernandez to get his views on the game.
It’s been a busy footballing schedule for most of the players in the squad. We asked Anthony how the team is feeling going into today’s game, “We are very much looking forward to it as we feel we are performing well as individuals in our respective clubs and now want to come together and give it our all for our nation.”
Both sides met back in March 2016 with Latvia coming out 5-0 winners despite it being 0-0 at half-time. On whether the squad has improved since then – Anthony replied, “I do feel the squad has improved since our last encounter and with our new game plan – we are all excited to get the ball rolling.”
Lincoln have been dominant in the league this season and Anthony has played a big part in their form – we asked if he’ll be hoping to replicate it today, “Its always an honour when i step onto the pitch for my country and never take it for granted. I want to play as i always do and show what i am all about on the big stage as i have been doing.”
Lastly, to all the fans going down to the Victoria Stadium to watch the game – Anthony has this message for you, ” I would say to the fans that we promise a good show today as in the Nations League because we are playing the smaller nations and our objective is simple: to win!”
