Gibraltar accepted as full member of UEFA

Gibraltar has been accepted as a full member by the UEFA Congress, becoming Europe's 54th official football nation.
The move had previously been resisted by some politicians in neighboring Spain, who wanted to stop the British territory from joining UEFA.
The decision will allow Gibraltar to enter into the qualifying competition for the 2016 European Championship.
