In hot conditions up in the mountains in Embona on the west coast, Dave Kennedy’s side completed their week unbeaten after three wins and a draw.

Vincenti’s strike came with five minutes to go in a match they should have won more convincingly.

Kennedy said: ‘On Tuesday night after we did not reach the semi-finals the players said they wanted to remain unbeaten throughout the tournament.

We have achieved that and it’s given everyone a lot of satisfaction.

‘Our victories in the last games were much easier than in our group matches against Menorca and Gibraltar.

I think the football organisers should be looking at the teams who get the most points from all the groups to go through.

‘For instance, we won four points and Bermuda won through their group with three points after a defeat.

Once all the top points winners are known, if it’s level then they could decide on goal difference.

We’ve scored late goals in our three wins, which proves to me our fitness levels have been good.

‘It’s been a hard but very enjoyable tournament and the players are to be congratulated for all their hard work they’ve put in, both in the preparation and in the competition.’
