'He Has Been Brilliant For Us For Years Now. He Keeps Us In Games'

'He Has Been Brilliant For Us For Years Now. He Keeps Us In Games'
By Maurice Brosnan

It will all come down to the final day. Ireland's quest for European Championship qualification was dealt a blow tonight as they went down 2-0 against Switzerland.

Mick McCarthy's side could have few complaints and Jeff Hendrick admitted as much. Speaking to Sky Sports post-match, the Burnley midfielder was frank in his assessment of it all.

"No. I think we were pretty poor the first half, it was for everyone to see. We didn't keep the ball well enough and they moved it well.

"We wanted to put that right in the second half and I thought we played a lot better. We tried to get the ball moving and pass it a bit more, it was just not enough at the end of the day."

He was quick to praise one man for his performance. Darren Randolph's penalty save was one of several superb stops and Hendrick hailed him for it.

"Daz has been brilliant for us for years now. He does that, he keeps us in games, especially against big teams like this. We need him and he was brilliant."

So it is on to Denmark: "Big game. We are at home. All to play for."
