GIBíS FIRST UEFA GOAL SCORER
Gibraltar’s first ever goal scorer in an official UEFA competition, Joseph Chipolina, proudly presented the Chief Minister, Fabian Picardo, with his football shirt to be framed and hung on the walls of No.6 Convent Place and leave his mark on local football history.
“Joseph’s futsal goal was Gibraltar’s first-ever goal in a UEFA competition and I hope it will be the first of many,” said Mr Picardo.
Mr Chipolina said it was an honour to present his shirt to the Chief Minister and he hoped the Gibraltar Football Association (GFA) would be allowed into UEFA so that he could continue to proudly represent Gibraltar in the world of football.
Joseph was accompanied by Chairman of the Football Committee Charles Prescott and Head Coach of the national futsal team Mario Prescott.
