13 Things from a Year in Football

Gibraltar get off the mark

Gibraltar are another underdog in the world of football. Big underdogs. In fact, they only have 1 professional footballer. The rest are all part time. Even better, one of the players is actually unemployed. And this little nation, just glad to be there, had never scored a competitive goal in their entire existence, until they played Scotland. (It had to be Scotland, didn’t it) Yes, Lee Casciaro, part time footballer part time policeman scored the nations first ever goal and silence the Hampden crowd. Scotland went on to win the game 6-1, but that goal will live in the memory of the country forever. Fair play chaps.
