Keano seemed fairly peeved with last nights showing - some cracking lines in today's press conference. Didn't see the game myself but sounded horrendous. No real need for concern though it was a second string side, biggest downer of the night was Harry Arter's injury prior to kick-off - he was M.O.T.M against the Dutch on Friday and looked in line to start against Sweden.

How and ever, Shane Long is hitting form at the right time; The Belgians are dropping like flies with injuries in defense; Italy have the worst squad they've had in years and Sweden are nothing special... So glass half full and all that, I think we have a chance of going through. We need to avoid defeat against Sweden in the first game though. Lose that and we are out. It's not the strongest of Irish squads by any stretch but O'Neill has instilled a spirit that hasn't existed for some time. We will be hard to beat (although poison to watch).
