Euro 2012 - Ireland vs Russia

Did anyone watch this game last night?

Basically Ireland started off terrible, conceded 2 goals in the first half an hour. Then within 10 minutes of the 2nd half conceded a third!

Then later on in the game Ireland got a penalty. Robbie Keane scored the peno and the Irish team got spurred on. 6 minutes later, Ireland scored a 2nd goal, to make it 3-2 to the Russians. For the last 20 minutes of the game, Ireland played the long ball, and that was it. There was a good few chances then and the Russians were put under real pressure. Both sides could've had another goal but in the end it finished "Ireland 2-3 Russia".

I am so pissed off about this. We should not have conceded those early goals, especially the 3rd one which was a completely jammy own goal!

The problem now is, our manager wont bother changing at least 2 of the players who are not up to international standard, while we have players begging to get a game, who are much better. Yet the manager wont pick them! Its crazy!

We have another game now on Tuesday against Slovakia. We're currently top of the table by alphabetical order, but after Tuesday, if we lose, we'll drop to 3rd, possibly 4th!! Its a tight table anyway, with 2 points separating the top 5 teams! :shock:

Anyway, heres the highlights of the Russia game:

:( :evil:
