Irish Fans Disillusioned After Another Grim Night For Irish Football

Irish Fans Disillusioned After Another Grim Night For Irish Football
By Maurice Brosnan Updated

The Republic of Ireland's UEFA Nations League campaign descended into disaster tonight as a severely weakened Welsh side grabbed a 1-0 victory in the Aviva Stadium.

It leaves Ireland's Euro 2020 seeding position in jeopardy as they move towards the third seed bracket. A distinct and familiar lack of attacking aspirations underpinned yet another uninspiring performance. Whatever about a lack of quality, there is a lack of excitement and ambition that is becoming a trend with Martin O'Neill's side.

The FAI announced an attendance of 38,321, who to their credit cheered to the end. Then they booed, as viewers were left disillusioned with the result, and the manner of it.

The absence of Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey made little difference. Two winnable games end with no goals, one point and little hope.

Once again, tonight encapsulated the grim reality of the current situation. On a night when Welsh youth overcame the senior side, Ireland's U21's Euro qualification campaign ended with a 2-0 defeat against Germany. The silver lining comes with a promising batch of U19s but in the interim the forecast is bleak.
