Irish Joy French Misery


Recommended Posts

Lol, Irish luck… One of those great myths that keeps the tourists happy but never helps when we need it, certainly not any more than luck/chance etc helps other teams…
We beat Italy because we were better than them (well, their reserve team) on the day. Beaten by Belgium who were just simply better than us. Should have beaten Sweden but didn’t - no such luck - if we had then we would have been playing Hungary, not France - How unlucky!
We got a penalty because Pogba tripped Long in the box, unlike the time against Belgium where Long had 2 feet coming at his head and no penalty was awarded.
The rest of the first half could have been any score, 2-0, 3-0, 2-2, 1-2 with lots of chances at both ends. A combination of tiredness, great French play and our inexperience (our players are old, not experienced).
Luck had nothing to do with it!
