Episode 1873: Ireland/Slovakia Preview – Are We About To Get Very, Very Lucky?
Stephen Kenny is only two games in, but he’s already facing what could be a defining moment in his time as Ireland head coach. It’s Slovakia tonight, in the Euro 2020 playoff, and Ireland have gotten every break possible in the build-up.
First of all, we’re playing behind closed doors, so no home fans to deal with. And secondly, the Slovakians have been decimated by injury, covid, and government-imposed self-isolation.
Dion Fanning and David Sneyd look ahead to this massive chance for Ireland, and we discuss Bratislava in the autumn, tripping over Carpathian mountain-tops, and booze trains.
