    From Ireland. Nobody at home really cares. Just another friendly for us. No pressure then no momentum. We thrive on that and loud fans. Gonna be a boring match like 2005.

    Kelly, St. Ledger, McShane, Kilbane,

    Ugh..... Even aying the name is horrible. Dunne and O'Shea injured.
    Kilbane is just, Kilbane....

    0-0 so far.

    Yeah, no Dunne & O'Shea really weaken the Irish defense but I suspect Ireland has something to prove tonight

    Damn...Robbie was given a perfectly weighted ball and was in on the keeper, not a good enough angle to score however...Corner

    I'd like to see McGeady get a good 30 mins. I think he can be good for us in a few years. To replace Duff. Horrible new jerseys.

    I never thought how annoyed Brazil must be about FB position. 2 of the best full backs in the world but both right-sided

    McGeady is a really nice player for the future, I agree...Seems atypical for an Irish player

    Those green kits are pretty ugly, I agree

    Yeah, the Maicon & Dani dilemma...Dunga has tried it a few times, I know, using both at the same time...I think we'll see that perhaps in the 2nd half...I think he has to experiment with both of them (Dani in the midfield) as they are both too good to sit either

    Originally Scottish though .
    Close there Doyle's header.

    I suppose like, Maicon RB Alves RM and Kaka like left Wing more central/ I think they should put Kaka's needs first though. Play to suit him.

    Why is this in the Inter Games/Tactics section??

    We have a whole section for National Teams...I think it fits in better over there.
