Elation seemed to fill the air in the Victoria Stadium as the Gibraltar XI on the field celebrated together, with even Dayle Coleing running the length of the field from his goal to join in the huddle. 1-0 after 17 minutes.
The visitors looked to respond straight away, testing Coleing in the Gibraltar net from distance, however the Glentoran keeper was more than a match for the low effort as he parried it to safety.
The goal seemed to settle Gibraltar who after taking the lead were firmly in the driving seat of the group as Liechtenstein now needed to score two goals against a Gibraltar side who were yet to concede this campaign.
With this being said, Liechtenstein began applying pressure on the Gibraltar defence towards the final third of the half, however, the home side always looked comfortable in their shape, limiting the space available to their opposition and always look a threat on the counter, particularly through De Barr who was proving to be a handful in attack with his pace, strength and dribbling ability.
