U19's play Spain in Euro Semi final tonight live on RTE @ 6.30pm.

Getting annihilated. Spain are a class above everyone in this competition.

It's easy to look the best in the world when your opposition can't string 3 passes together and apply no pressure when you have possession. Totally over hyped team, I can't see too many of these lads making the cut unfortunately.

Spain have been hammering everyone though, not as if this was a once off. They'll destroy the Czechs in the final too. Whatever way you look at it, the Irish lads have reached the last four of Europe so they must be doing something right.

Well said.
Too many lads always wanting to be negative about everything,fair play to them for getting so far.

A bad beating indeed, but the lads are young and-especially at this early stage of their careers-their confidence will be sapped and some may struggle more than others with such a margin of defeat at this stage of the competition. As has been said, this Spain team are a class above everyone else, and the most important thing is for the Irish management team is to encourage the players to keep their heads up and help develop the potential that seems to be there.

They just played one of the best U19's teams ever, they made the semi finals of a european competition and still some on here complain.

They will learn from this experience and they will get better, fair play to the lads who played their hearts out and got so far.

Ageed, Jez these lads get to the semi-finals of a European Competition and Get beat by a country that has some of the best soccer nurseries in the world.

Big game tonight against the Slovaks. Late injury to Shane Long means Kevin Doyle starts. A win tonight should seal second place and then head to Russia with alot of the pressure off. It won't be easy tonight though...it never is. Come on YBIG.

Anyone going. Will there was 30k there?

I cannot see much excitement to be honest. At 10 pm this evening could we be looking back to the Dublin and Donegal match with nostalgia?

They were hoping for 40k? Not sure how they will do in the end.

Big game, puts them in a great position if they take the 3 points. Should be interesting and I'd not expect an open game.
