Episode 2665: Irish Football’s State Of Emergency Enters Nine Euro Meal Stage
Tonight the Republic of Ireland take on Gibraltar in the ‘more or less sold-out’ Aviva Stadium – but the result in Athens on Friday night has cast its shadow right across the weekend… leading to a charged Press Conference on Sunday.
One of those Press Conference participants, James McClean, tonight makes his 100th appearance for Ireland. Alongside David Sneyd and Dion Fanning we chat about the trials and tribulations of McClean’s career in England, and his unfaltering commitment to Ireland.
And so to tonight…. It’s a no-win ‘must win’ game for Stephen Kenny and Ireland. But what of the future? What of the Project? Is Gibraltar to be the rock on which this era runs aground?
