THE national futsal team are preparing to take on Northern Ireland in their first match on home soil for over a year.

Two friendly games will take place on November 24 and 25 and are free to attend for spectators.

The games will be the first in charge for Jose Carlos Gil Prieto after he took over as coach from Peter Moreno.

“Spectators can expect a national futsal team who are looking to put on a performance, at home, for the first time in over a year,” Steven Gonzalez from the Gibraltar FA told the Gibraltar Olive Press.

“It is a squad who are continuing their development at this level.”

Futsal is a variant of football played on a hard court between two teams of five players where unlimited substitutions are permitted.
