Rub of the green in Croke Park

Rub of green keeps lucky Trap smiling – Soccer – Independent.ie.

Ireland were, once again, very lucky to win. This time against Georgia in Croke Park. It was a very cold night with an estimated 50 thousand watching. A goal in the 1st minute by Georgia was completely against the script as there were alot of talking about how many would Ireland score! Luckily on the 74th minute, we were rewarded a penalty and to be honest the Georgians were hard done by. It simply wasn’t a penalty but Robbie Keane didn’t protest as he kicked the ball home to level the score. Four minutes later, Keane scored again to put us one ahead. From then on in, Ireland sat back and soaked up the pressure. It was a good win but very painful to watch. If only Ireland could play good football.
