Extremely Hoarse Séamus Coleman Shows Why He's Captain With Fantastic Post-Match Interview
By Gavan Casey Updated

A cracking James McClean goal did for Austria and made history for Ireland in Vienna, on a famous night for football in this country.

Ireland had never before won in the Austrian capital, but a superb collective effort on a difficult surface saw 14 men in green battle over the line to claim three points.

Paramount to Ireland's defensive effort was captain Séamus Coleman, who once more put in a stellar display when his side came under pressure and, crucially, rating particularly highly in our player ratings from a historic Irish performance.

As he spoke to Tony O'Donoghue with Ireland coming off the pitch, it was clear how vocal Ireland's new captain has become since the Euros. He could barely speak, but with whatever voice he had left, he showered praise on the 3,500 Irish fans who travelled to Vienna for the game, and reserved some kind words, too, for his fellow Ulsterman and match-winner McClean.

He's absolutely delighted and rightfully so. That was a tremendous team effort by Ireland, who now sit top of Group D and six points clear of Austria, with 10 points from their opening four fixtures.

Bring on the Welsh.
