It’s all been said already…but the Gibraltar veterans were outstanding last night. A Beckham-esque cross from Casciaro playing on the right, and Chipolina at the back.
Glad they’re still here, enjoying the moment they’ve worked their whole lives for.

Historic night, Cabrera and Chipolina head a goal each as Gibraltar beat Liechtenstein 2-1 . Six points in the bag. So proud of these young lions and the technical team. Well done! @FootballGib @GibraltarFA @Adam7Roberts @FGScoreCentre @LincolnRedImps pic.twitter.com/Xy78QxpUY6
