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.
