Spain would appeal all referee decisions, but then just go for a vino and a siesta and forget all about it, whilst England walks away with Gibraltar under its arm.

Reading about Gibraltar, seems a chance of a major embarrassment there as I doubt they are anything like international standard. Suppose they lose their first match 13-0, what happens then? If they lost all games by a huge margin it will bring the thing into disrepute.
