I wasn’t able to see the game on TV but to see on the screen 1:0 to Italy for most of the game, I thought it was going to be one of those “Respectable losses” at the hands of the World Champions headlines the next day, etc. but then to my own and Ireland’s relief, there was a 89th minute equaliser from Roberto Keano!!! It definitely reminds one of the equaliser in Ireland’s last World Cup against Germany. That was very sweet as I was in the middle of 30 Germans watching that one. I ran around the room with that equaliser and yesterday’s could prove to be just as vital getting the boys to South Africa. Well done the boys in Green.
