Gibraltar is now a Uefa football team able to play in the European Cup
GIBRALTAR has been accepted into UEFA. The rock could soon be playing England, Germany, Italy and World Champions Spain in competitive matches.
Gareth Latin, President of the Gibraltar Football Association, is happy:
“This is a momentous occasion for football in Gibraltar. UEFA membership means that we can begin the next chapter of Gibraltarian football.”
“At last we’ll be able to show the whole of Europe that we can match the best* with football of a high standard and entertaining style. It will open up a whole new world of opportunities for our highly skilled young footballers.”
Like shopping trips to Wembley and the chance to be called a “****” by Wayne Rooney.
* Best in Andorra.
