The Gibraltar football selection will play Slovakia in their first international game.
The friendly match will be held in the Portuguese Algarve on November 19. Gibraltar’s second opponents will be the Pharaoh Islands and for that match Gibraltar will be at home in the Victoria Stadium.Oct 29, 2013 - 11:46:57 PM
For Gibraltar, because they have been admitted to UEFA, their club and national teams can now participate in international competitions.
Quite how well the main Gibraltar team will do is a matter of conjecture. Already the Under 19’s and Under 17’s have taken part in the pre-classification for the European categories, where Gibraltar lost all their games, five of the six by the largest goal margin.
Gibraltar can use these friendly matches as much needed practice, because now they are with the big boys and they have to participate in the classification stage of the Europe Cup in 2016, which will be held in France. They will know their rivals on February 23 after the draw has been made in Nice.
