Historic victory of anguished Gibraltar

The team from the small country with only slightly more than 30,000 inhabitants picked out in division D of the Nations League to three points in Armenia: 0-1. The players of Gibraltar were probably extra strained because for the kick-off in Yerevan the wrong national anthem was played.

The players did not hear their own national anthem, but the anthem of Liechtenstein in the same group. ,,The national association of Gibraltar is very disappointed”, wrote to the federation on Twitter. ,,The Armenian bond has joined our apologies and that is in the stadium also announced.”

Gibraltar won in Armenia thanks to a unused penalty kick shortly after the rest of defender Joseph Chipolina. The football players from the southern tip of Spain won earlier two times for a friendly against Malta and Latvia. The first official victory was celebrated in Yerevan.
