Gibraltar were held to a goal-less draw by San Marino on an heavy and sodden pitch in Serravalle this afternoon.
The hosts new this was their biggest chance of winning a home competitive international, on home soil, after 30 years of trying, against arguably the one European Nation that their supporters would have expected them to get a result against.
For Gibraltar this was the first of two chances, this week, to seal top spot in the UEFA Nations League D Group 2. Two wins from the previous two group games meant Gibraltar sat comfortably top of the table.
This afternoon's match was also a historic occasion in European International Football, it was the first time ever that a UEFA Nations League match was to be officiated by an all-female team of match officials.
Julio Ribas played brought his big guns back in to after the week out in Bulgaria in mid week. Dayle Coleing returned in goal, with a back three of Roy Chipolina, Scott Wiseman and Aymen Mouelhi. Sergeant and Olivero were the wing backs with Torrilla and Annesley in the centre of midfield. Walker and Lee Casciaro playing in behind Tjay De Barr up front.
