Four-and-a-half years after becoming a UEFA member, Gibraltar won their second ever game in international football on Sunday.
The victory came in a friendly at home against Latvia. Coincidentally, the last home game Gibraltar had played at the Victoria Stadium, two years ago, was also against Latvia. The visiting side won 5-0 on that occasion.
Yesterday, it was a far different scoreline. An 88th minute deflected free kick from Liam Walker was the difference between the teams.

Walker's goal sealed Gibraltar's first ever win on home soil. It was also their first victory since becoming a FIFA member nearly two years ago.
Their first ever win was against Malta in June 2014. That game, which finished 1-0, was played in Faro.
Previously, Gibraltar had been unable to play at the Victoria Stadium as it was deemed an unsuitable venue by UEFA.
Caretaker manager for Gibraltar on the day was Northern Irishman, Desi Curry. Now Technical Director of the Gibraltar FA, Curry was previously the IFA's Technical Director between 2009 - 2013.
After 23 defeats, 1 draw and 117 goals conceded, Gibraltar claim their 2nd win ever and their 1st since 4 June 2014, when they beat Malta 1-0 in a friendly in Faro. Their 1-0 win over Latvia is their 1st ever win at their own Victoria Stadium. @GibraltarFA

Gibraltar are a team familiar to Irish fans since being drawn together for Euro 2016 qualifying.
