    Winning against San Marino isn't an accomplishment.

    Anyone can beat them and usually do by 15+ goals per match.

    That's a bit of a bump!

    Sure a win against San Marino isn't really that amazing, but Gibraltar is roughly the same size & population as San Marino.

    Since then, however, they've won their appeal to join UEFA as their application predated UEFA's change in requirements in an attempt to block them - all new countries now need to be UN members (which is now keeping out Kosovo).

    They've played 3 friendlies so far, getting a draw against Slovakia (and losing the other two games against Estonia and Faroe Islands). They're in Group D for the Euro 2016 qualifiers, but have to play some of the games in Portugal while they update their stadium.

    The winners play Zalgiris of Lithuania or Astana of Kazakhstan. “I never thought Lincoln would play Celtic in a competitive match, and actually be able to compete with them,” says McElwee. “It’s not even the stuff of dreams. It’s more like fantasy football than real life.”
    The “Our Vision” page of Lincoln’s official website says the club strive for “A feeling that will last a lifetime…” They had that feeling a week ago. If they go through , they will become immortal.
