Gibraltar beat Armenia

Gibraltar’s players could be forgiven for not joining in with the national anthem ahead of their Nations League match away to Armenia – because their hosts played Liechtenstein’s by mistake, Daily Mail reported.

The Gibraltar Football Association said it was “very disappointed” by the mix-up ahead of the clash in Yerevan and that the Armenian FA had apologised.

Gibraltar got the last laugh on the pitch, though, as they claimed a shock 1-0 win thanks to Joseph Chipolina’s second-half penalty.

It was their first ever victory in a competitive match.
