Episode 2664: Welcome To Hellas
Ireland lost 2-1 tonight in Athens but the scoreline didn’t reflect how utterly dominant Greece were over the 90 minutes. This was a bad performance, a bad result and may have huge implications for the coaching group and some of the players involved.
Richie Sadlier joins us on the pod fresh off the telly while Ken Early dials in from his seat in the Press Box in Athens. Ken is baffled by some of the selections made by Stephen Kenny, the standard of passing and what the week of prep in Turkey was all about.
Plus there’s VAR timeouts, corner onslaughts, shapeless defence, politeness and playoffs.
