Gibraltar's minister expresses pride at Euro 2016 draw

Gibraltar's Chief Minister has expressed his pride at the draw for Euro 2016 after the British overseas territory was forced to switch groups following its brief pairing with Spain.

The blind draw in Nice, France saw the territory, which will compete in qualifying for the very first time, briefly drawn in the same group with Spain before they were moved for "political reasons".

Fabian Picardo, tweeted:

Exciting day. Exciting draw. Proud of GFA's involvement in Euro16. Love the group we are in. Can't wait for the games. All of them!

Gibraltar will now face Scotland, the Republic of Ireland, Germany, Poland and Georgia in Group D when fixtures begin in September.
