Two wins from two games. Last night’s 1-0 victory over Slovakia, has us breathing down the Czech’s necks. Last night, Croke Park was rocking. As i anticipated, the atmosphere was much better than Saturday’s match.
Mid-week, night time kick-offs mean families and kids have school and work in the mornings and don’t want the hassle of travelling around a gridlocked city. So all the fair weather fans were at home, and the hardcore fans were at the match – the way it should be.
With the Czech Republic and Slovakia both away, yet to play, plus Germany at home, it’s still a mountain to climb. We need a minimum 6 points from those 3 games to stand any chance. Ireland have a woeful record away from home, always have done.. but these two recent victories have given us a lifeline.
As usual, here’s a few snaps and video which i took…
Below are the the Slovakian fans.. They were pretty lively despite their team playing very poorly.
We were 1-0 up after about 12 mins.
end of match celebrations…
Finally, here’s video of the kick-off – atmosphere was fantastic 😀
