Didn't see it. When was the last time a League of Ireland player scored for Ireland?

What was the deal with the rainbow coloured numbers on the shirts? Has George or Bungle passed away?

If i was lenihan i would be raging. The guy stole his goal. It reminded me of David Nugent when like a twat he poked in jermain defoes effort as it was about to cross the line. Its also risky because nani did something similar to Ronaldo a few years back. Ronaldo chips the keeper for what would be a sublime goal only for nani to steal it and then for the goal to be disallowed because nani was offside

Think that's very harsh. Ball was coming at him quickly, instinct took over. Also he may not be fully aware of where he was standing relative to the goals. I thought he played quite well too for a bit making a big step up. It was great to see arter, Rice, o dowda trying some passes and flair in the last 15 mins instead of hoofing it. More chances came from that than in the 1st half where the bombed ball at walters

Nothing's ever enough for them. Can we not just try to enjoy sport without the virtue signalling nonsense.

To be honest, I didn't know. I didn't know there was such thing as a pride month. But OMS is correct, enough of the bs in sport.

If its pride they want surely they need to go to rugby. There is lots of PRIDE, MEN ARE GIANTS. And the whole game is a bit camp anyway.

I was in the crowd with three buddies. I think we were still talking about it 24 hours later. Magic moment.
