International football returns tonight, with both Ireland teams in action. Already Wales have been spanked 5-1 at home to Slovakia, Rep. Ireland are currently 2-2 with Cyprus and N. Ireland await their kick-off with Denmark later in the evening.
All comments are welcome at Slugger’s own version of 5 Live’s 606!
In the most humiliating defeat in recent memory, Rep. Ireland lost 5-2 to Cyprus. Is this the end of the Staunton era?
