Greece 4-0 Gibraltar

Greece 4-0 Gibraltar

Torosidis '32

Mitroglou '61, '63

Giannotas '78 

After a disappointing scoreline at home against Estonia on Saturday, Gibraltar's National team were determined to put in a much improved performance in Athens this evening, and that they did. 

Still without three key players Lee Casciaro, Joseph Chipolina & Ryan Casciaro, Head coach Jeff Wood made two changes from the Estonia game bringing in Jeremy Lopez & Alain Pons for Jason Pusey & Jamie Bosio, meaning Jayce Olivero switched to left centre back, Anthony Hernandez dropped back into his more familiar central midfield role and Lopez played upfront. 

Gibraltar started well, Lopez proving a handful upfront and Greece were becoming more and more frustrated as the first half went on. It was only a disputed 32nd minute strike from Torosidis which took the home team into the break 1-0 up. Gibraltar's defenders were irate that Assistant Referee did not raise his flag to signal the Greek Captain offside. 

Into the second half and two quick neat finishes from the Greek talisman Mitroglou all but ended the game as a contest before Giannotas added a 4th on the 78th minute. 

Despite the scoreline, a much improved performance from our national team who have gained immense experience in what is only Gibraltar's first ever World Cup Qualifying Campaign,
