World Cup

I think Ireland really have it in them to lift the world cup next year if they play to their ability and their own game. Last night's performance against Portugal showed what we can do. It looked a subdued match but that is due to the fact that we drowned the Portuguese attacking forays into appearing as a minor threat. That is a tactic in itself in much the same way as the Greeks did in Euro 2004 but with the added advantage of attacking prowess to back up defensive tactics as Ireland possess then there is every chance of success in Germany.
