A plane takes off metres away from Gibraltar-Ireland game!

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 1,981

Strange scenes are usually seen in the stadiums of the smaller nations and that is what happened today in the clash between Gibraltar and Ireland. The stadium is just a few metres from the airport.

Gibraltar is only a small place. The place took place at the renovated Victoria Stadium and we saw a comical incident during the first half of the encounter. Just a few metres away from where Gibraltar and Ireland were playing for three points, a plane of a well known low cost British airline, was on the runway behind the goal ready to take off. 

And that is not all. The Rock of Gibraltar is located behind the other goal, the closest point between Europe and Africa. A match played in a stadium with incomparable scenery. Gibraltar and Ireland are two of the five teams in group D looking to qualify for Euro 2020. Denmark, Georgia and Switzerland are the other teams in the group.
