He led us to the Promised Land of a major tournament but Giovanni Trapattoni will face the wrath of the people if his Irish failures part like the Red Sea against the minnows of the Faroe Islands.
We’ve played the Islanders on two previous occasions but the natives would hardly believe they could be providing the setting for Trapattoni’s last stand.
Brian Kerr oversaw two victories in the World Cup 2006 campaign when Roy Keane was back in the fold. How Trap wishes he could call on a player with the calibre of the Corkman. Ironically, should the footballing gods smite Trapattoni tonight, Keane is being touted as Ireland’s saviour.
