Gibraltar pushes to play in the big league

Stuck in a tug-of-war between Spain and Britain, Gibraltar's football association is facing a crucial UEFA vote.

    Gibraltar is known as the territory that has, for years, been at the centre of a tug-of-war between Spain and Britain.

    But now their football team is aiming for a place on the European stage. European football's governing body UEFA will vote on whether to include Gibraltar as its 54th member. 

    But as Matt Rumsey reports, the decision may have huge political consequences.
