Bitter for Ireland, bitter for Shay!

I honestly felt that Ireland were going to have a bit of luck this time and grab something from Spain, but the pattern of losing a goal after 4 minutes repeated itself again, when Torres stole the ball rounded 2 players and battered it high into the net over Shay’s head. It’s the worst start Ireland could’ve asked for apart from getting someone sent off in the process but it seriously dampened Ireland’s hopes of getting anything from the World Champions. The Irish singing the ‘Fields of Athenry’ at the end was the highlight for me as an Irish fan. What a response to a 4:0 defeat. Incredible.

    hey Shay I am a Newcastle supporter living in the states right now and just wanted to say. Before you and the rest of the Irish team get to downhearted, thinking somehow you just wern’t good enough. take a look at Hollands group and ask yourselves wether any one would say they were not good enough to be there. played 3 lost 3. I watched all the games so far and thought the Irish team played as well as most. But football is football some times you just need a little bit more luck.
