    Ireland's Euro 2020 Qualifying campaign began yesterday in Gibraltar. We won 1-0 on an awful pitch in horrendous conditions - but even allowing for that, this was awful from Ireland. Still, a win is a win and the poor performance will be quickly forgotten if we improve against Georgia on Tuesday.

    The Swiss, meanwhile, won 2-0 in Tbilisi to get their campaign off to a promising start. They play Denmark at home on Tuesday.

    Damn but that was awful to watch. Ireland struggled against a team of part-timers. At this point in time I'm hoping Ireland doesn't qualify.

    Last night's 1-0 win against Georgia was much, much better. It wasn't outstanding, and we still conspired to make the last ten minutes very nervy; but it was Ireland's best passing display since, probably, the loss to France in Euro 2016. We actually looked like a proper football team!
     
    Dyvel repped this.
