Notable inclusions to the team include Kyle Casciaro, who although being capped 23 times makes his first appearance in the national team since 2017, and George Cabrera, who has been in a great run of goalscoring form since returning to the Lincoln first team.

There are no places in the national team though for Mikey Yome, the Europa striker who has been in good form this season, or Adam Priestley, who has also been in good form in the English non-league system with Ossett United. In fact, like September there are few English-based players in the team, with the vast majority of the squad playing in the local league, which takes another break during the international window.

With the Under 21s playing away in Macedonia on the same day Gibraltar take on Liechtenstein, there are not as many younger players as usual in the team, although the likes of Tjay De Barr, Graeme Torrilla, Michael Negrette and more are on standby in case they are needed.
