GIBRALTAR lost by just four goals against world champions Germany in their European qualifier match.

The minnows have lost all four of their qualifiers, but nobody would have foreseen such a close score.

Bayern Munich’s Thomas Muller scored twice before Mario Gotze and a Yogan Santos own goal sealed the win in Nuremberg.

Former Portsmouth player Liam Walker went close for Gibraltar with a ferocious dipping volley  from 35 yards.

Uefa’s newest member nation have conceded 21 goals without scoring but manager Allen Bula was still delighted with his team.

“It’s a great result and we really needed something like this – 0-4, I could not have asked for more,” he said.

Meanwhile Germany coach was unhappy with his side’s inability to score more.

“I am everything but satisfied with this. The team did not do what we wanted to do,” he said.

“We wanted to play as world champions and four goals are too few.”
