Exclusive – 21 man squad announced for Faroe Islands match next week

I can reveal the 21 man squad that Allen Bula has announced for the match against the Faroe Islands on Friday.

 

As far as I am aware, this has not been published anywhere else (mainly due to the lack of local media on a Sunday),so, the following is an exclusive for the blog.

The message from Allen Bula is as follows:

“Squad of 21 players have been selected to face Faroe Island national team on the 11th March 2011. All players have been re-tested in fitness test and have reached the extra 20% we were lacking 3 weeks ago. R .Casciaro injury was not as serious as we first thought.
Only 2 players have remained in the injury list, and unfortunatly are not available. Both senior players M.Reoch & J.Chipol, and very important losses to the squad.

Main Squad:
Goalkeepers:

J. Perez Man Utd (Gib)
J.Robba Lynx FC
J.Borg Gib Utd

Defence:

A.Greene Glacis AFC
R.Chipolina Lincoln FC
Y.Santos Glacis AFC
R.Casciaro Lincoln AFC
B.Perez Glacis AFC
M.Casciaro Lincoln FC

Midfield:

D.Duarte (Capt) Lincoln FC
A.Payas Glacis AFC
R.Guilling Lincoln FC
W.Asquez Man Utd (Gib)

S. Garro Gib Pilots FC

Strikers:

L.Casciaro Lincoln FC
G.Lopez Man Utd (Gib)
M.Yome Lincoln FC
P.Podesta Gib Utd

Reserve Squad:

T.Charay Lincoln FC
J.Catania Gib Pilots FC
D.Hammond Man Utd (Gib)
E.Green Gib Pilots FC
K.Chipolina Gib Utd

J.Buhajiar Gib Pilots FC

Injured Players:

M.Reoch Man Utd (Gib)
J.Chipol Glacis AFC

regards
Allen Bula

So, the squad is entirely composed of local players, and has a mix of experienced players and youngsters breaking their way into the national game.  This is a very strong squad for Gibraltar, and one that should hopefully test the Faroes on Friday.

    Where is the match taking place? Is this as a warm up for the Island Games?

      The match is taking place in the Victoria Stadium, Gibraltar on this upcoming Friday (11th). Yes, it is a warm up for the Island Game, although I believe the Faroese are not in the football this year.

    No the Faeroese haven’t been involved in the men’s football since their acceptance into Uefa – I think we (Ynys Môn) were the last side to beat them!

      Ah didn’t think as much, thanks :)

      Should be a good game, atlhough I doubt Gibraltar will win really.

      Faroe Islands won every match they ever played at the Island Games (8 matches in 1989 and 1991), including 2 victories against Ynys Môn, 6-0 in 1989 and 2-0 in the 1991 final. Wishful thinking blogdroed? ;-)
