Trap Gets Ireland up the Pole

Well, no one was expecting that. All the pre-match thought predicted a cagey Irish performance, a low-scoring game, and deemed an away goal a bonus. We can book the flights to Poland and Ukraine. A 4-0 win reflected a dominant Irish performance, particularly in the second half and the nation is waking up today with massive smile on its face. Dublin on Tuesday is going to be a hell of a party.

Passage of Play: Shay Given

“I grew up all my life as an Irish supporter and just because I live in England now doesn’t mean I don’t know what it means to the people.”
