I was delighted to read of the decision by the UEFA governing body to provide financial and educational support to the Gibraltarian FA.
Hopefully this is the first step towards formally allowing a team from Gibraltar to compete at the European level. I have no doubt that we will now hear howls of outrage from across the border as the Spanish FA threaten to boycott European Football, but if they do then let them.
We all know that the World Champions aren't going to cut themselves off and exist in splendid footballing isolation. Gibraltar has the right to be represented in UEFA, and I hope that last night’s news will help achieve this goal.
