Gibraltar come from behind to win again

Gibraltar are second in Nations League Group D4

Typical. You wait 22 games for a competitive victory and then two come along in the space of four days.

Having broken their duck in Armenia on Saturday, Gibraltar claimed a second competitive win by coming from behind to beat Liechtenstein in the Nations League.

Strikes from George Cabrera and Joseph Chipolina cancelled out Dennis Salanovic’s opener for the visitors.

It is the first time they have scored more than once in any game.

The result even gives them hope of qualifying for Euro 2020 through the Nations League – they are three points behind leaders Macedonia in Group D4.

Nations League explained: How the new format works

Gibraltar became a Uefa-affiliated team in 2013 and prior to Saturday’s result their only two wins – against Malta and Latvia – had come in friendly matches.

They lost all of their Euro 2016 and 2018 World Cup qualifying matches, conceding 56 in the former and 47 in the latter.
