Denmark 0 – 4 Ireland

Yes, dear readers, your eyes are not deceiving you.  The understrength Boys in Green beat Denmark 4-0, away from home in a friendly international last night. Everything about the game – the result, the performances, the goals – was better than we have seen for a while.

Now in the past, I have been an ardent critic of manager Steve Staunton and his selections but credit where credit is due – they did well last night. I feel Darren Potter, Aiden McGeady and Shane Long did particularly well.

But let’s not get too carried away please.  Beating Denmark in a friendly will do nothing other than put the team in a good frame of mind for the upcoming matches against Slovakia and Czech Republic.  Beating one or both of those sides come crunch time in a competitive match is another thing entirely.

One of my colleagues roared “the glory days are back !” at me this morning as we passed in the corridor … not quite !

But well done fellas – good result, good attitude and please continue with the positivity.

Hmm. Well, let’s see. We’ve all soldiered through the ridiculous times and saw no return for our faith, except two fingers from the FAI. So it’s not surprising that we might hold back a trifle right now. Wait until they win against real opposition, like Munster.
