Well we won. But it was more of a moral victory for Cyprus than it was for us. The team played crap. Once we scored the only goal of the game we just faffed about for the rest of the match. And seeing as we scored in the sixth minute that was a hell of a lot of faffing.
If it hadn’t been for Shay Given in goals we would have lost. Lost to Cyprus! He even saved a penalty. And all because Ireland stood miles off the Cypriots, letting them run around the pitch with the ball, gaining confidence and threatening to score.
Ireland would want to seriously up their game if we are to qualify.
Somewhat shinier, you can see the first few minutes of Serenity online.
