Great win in that we never stopped trying. Thought we huffed and puffed for most of it and our chance was gone when Wes missed that sitter. He was back to being a useless Shels w_nker for 60 seconds before becoming a proud product of our marvelous league again when he whipped in that cross!
The impact of us winning or losing on other teams didn’t bother me until Hamilton mentioned Turkey would go through if we didn’t win. Haven’t forgotten those scumbags out on the pitch in Bursa and the rocks getting pelted at our players while the cops stood around laughing. Hope they were crying into their kebabs as Brady’s header hit the net.
Speaking of revenge, dumping France out of their Championship in their own home ground would be the ultimate payback for you know what. Can’t see it happening but if there’s such a thing as karma, Robbie Keane will score in injury time after handling the ball while 10 yards offside.
Also heard a mad stat that’s fun to annoy your country cousins with - no culchie has ever scored for Ireland in the Finals of a major tournament.
