Scotland would go on to win the match 6-1. Steven Fletcher scored a hat-trick for Scotland, the team's first in 46 years.

Gibraltar was accepted into UEFA in 2013 but is not yet a full member of FIFA. Casciaro, who scored the goal, is a part-time policeman, according to The Independent.

The team is now 0-0-5 in Euro 2016 qualifying, at the bottom of Group D. Opponents have scored 27 goals against Gibraltar's one.
