They should be able to fix the goals scored by lesser ranked teams. The defence needs to be more alert.

Griezmann with his pink hair has France in front already.

lativias first goal was  a cracker.
It was. But crackers can be saved. Especially if your positioning and footwork are right.

Goalkeeping coach, are you? You wouldn't have saved that goal either.

I'm not a professional soccer player trying to stake his claim as Ireland's number 1.

You don't need to be a goalkeeper coach to see his shape and footwork were wrong.

This France team could really trash Ireland.

Brian Kerr is 100% right here. If Kenny tells Ireland to try pass out from the back against France the way he did in the last campaign, they will rip us assunder on Monday.

France smashed Holland 4-0 tonight. Kelleher or Bazuna is going to have a busy night next week

As opposed to what? Hoof it long and give the French the ball?

That's interesting. Everybody thought there were 2 runaway leaders in the group.

Mixing it up. I assume you noticed the dutch were 2 nil down after 7 minutes trying to pass out through not the world's most aggressive press. But the outrageous pace France has, means conceding the ball to them in those areas will be disasterous.

It’s pretty rudimentary. Trying to play out from the back with such a limited team against one of the worlds best is moronic. I’d happily watch hoof ball for an hour and be bored to tears if it got us a point.

What will you do for the other 30 minutes watch it from behind the couch?  ;D

Why would Kenny divulge his tactics during a press conference ?

Horses for courses, go 5 at the back with Duffy sitting as the 3rd CB, Richard Dunne levels of heroics needed tonight.

would you say greece and ireland is about the same level these days so even the 2 games against greece would considered a 50/50
