Would not put it past the blazers to pretend they had someone lined up and then if John O'Shea doesn't F up too much (the bar was low, very low), come out with his promising performance in the two matches has led them to change their mind.

France 1-0 up at half time in the women's Euro away qualifier. France goal came early and Irish women under a lot of pressure that half. Big step up in standard and they've done well to keep it to one. But they got a horrid hard group with 3 of the top 5 teams in the world in a 4 team group. RTE covering with commentary from the ever green George Hamilton.

1-0 it ended. France managed by Hervé Renard, the suave ultra tanned Frenchman with the crisp white unbuttoned shirts who managed Saudi Arabia at the last World Cup. Megan Campbell back for Ireland with her long throws. Good to see. French dominated but Ireland did well to hold them to 1. England up next at Aviva. They drew 1-1 with Sweden tonight.

2-0 loss at home to England. Damage was done in 1st half, where England also missed a penalty. As Euro champions they are a step up. Ireland really didn't start playing until the 70th minute with the introduction of Megan Campbell and Leanne Kiernan. They made a serious impact and Ireland had a rake of chances to nab a goal or two in the last 15 minutes, Katie McCabe almost scoring when the England goalie's kicking it out managed to whack the ball off Katie's backside. Questions will be asked about the manager's starting team/tactics. But overall we are very dependent on a few good players.

Bottom of the group without a point or a goal scored. Are the team really better without Vera Pau as some of the players told the media?

England, France and Sweden are in the top 6 in world Football. Ireland are 25th. Give them a break. Its a massive learning curve for them. A nightmare group.

I posed the question than criticising. Vera Pau did well yet was a lack of respect on her departure.

Not too happy about the treatment of Pauw myself. She got us to where we are. There must have been some skeletons in the closet.

They got very unlucky with the draw, England and Sweden were in pot 2 and 3 because of poor performance in the previous Nations League tournament. They will still have a chance to make it through the playoffs into Euro 2025 but if they lose all 6 games, which could happen that might make the playoff path tougher.
