Tight Irish matches in Belfast and Dublin

At Landsdowne Road in Dublin 42 minutes into the Republic’s gripping first half against France and it’s 0-0. Get the second half live here. The 14,000 crowd is clearly the twelth man, as at the end of the first half at least, the motley crew that is Northern Ireland have held a much classier England, and even rattled them by times. And they getting no favours for England’s Enniskillen born goalkeeper Paul Robinson. Keep in touch here.
Great result for Scotland in Oslo! Whatever match you been watching, let us have your thoughts!

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here.
