Just three minutes later it was that man Casciaro again, causing havoc in and amongst the Liechtenstein defence who didnt know 'whether to stick or twist'. This time he found himself clean through, one on one with the keeper, however uncharacteristically, Buchel denied the Gibraltar forward.
By this stage Gibraltar were dominant. Walker had a shot but was denied by Buchel in the 16th minute, and despite bookings for Annesley and De Barr, the visitors were now in total control.
Walker again went close just before the half hour mark just before, incredibly against the run of play, out of no where, Sandro Wolfinger flashed a long range effort just over Goldwin’s cross bar.
Graeme Torrilla was then booked in first half stoppage time, but as the half time whistle went, Gibraltar were firmly in charge.
Liechtenstein made two changes at the break as they looked to take advantage of their home conditions, a heavy pitch in the cold and rain in the shadow of the Liechtenstein mountains.
Yildiz replaced Fabio Wolfinger and Frommelt replaced Sele. And it seemed to have an instant impact as Yildiz clipped the bar immediately. Despite another shot from Walker which was blocked, Lichtenstein were looking to take control of the game.
In the 51st minute Frommelt brought a smart save out of Goldwin, before Salanovic took the corner and Hofer rose to meet it only to be denied by another save from Goldwin.
Then Liechtenstein’s moment came. Another Salanovic corner was met this time by Malin whose header was parried by Goldwin. Malin pounced on the rebound, only for the Gibraltar keeper to make up for his mistake with a wonder save.
De Barr went close again in the 61st minute before he was replaced 10 minutes later by Reece Styche, A superb effort from the young striker on his return to the Gibraltar starting line up after a lengthy lay off.
Annesley then fired just over before Ethan Jolley replaced Lee Casciaro.
