Episode 1011: Ireland Need A Hero, O’Neill’s Options, Ireland’s Passion DNA, Danish Budgie Hearts, Italy Out
Today we discover whether Ireland can become the last European nation to qualify for the 2018 World Cup. Who will be our hero?
Last night, Sweden clinched the second-last place by knocking out Italy, whose camp looked divided and rancorous. Italy must now confront their first failure to qualify for the World Cup since 1958. It’s getting emotional, as Paddy Agnew explains.
De Rossi asked to warm up: “Why the hell should I go on? We don’t need to draw here, we need to win!” Points towards Insigne. #ITASWE #ItalySweden https://t.co/3zwTZeBhEW
