I didn't see the goal, I'm just glad that Ireland took points away from Spain. That'll help us in the long run.

Denmark ftw!

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed, the little baby Jesus, lay down his sweet head.

The stars in the bright sky, looked down where he lay-
HEALY!
HEALY!
HEALY!

Well done NI and grats to all their fans. Just hope he pops in a hattrick for us on the weekend Cool

What he means is that he wants the Northern Ireland Team and Republic of Ireland team to join up as this is what they do in Rugby there isn't a N.Ireland Team and the Republic of Ireland Team theres just the Ireland Team and frankly it works really well they are a good team. But no as good as Scotland lately :p in football and rugby.

ok i've re-read multiple times and i see why you might be misreading. Im Irish, not northern Irish. I want to Irish team to have good players, but currently we are stuck with the worst players. So I was wondering why can't the irish squad include some of the great Northern Irish players like they do with the rugby team, and between the two teams we might actually have one team that might do well.

Sorry about my first post and the misunderstandings, I was just shocked Laughing

Simple. Under FIFA rules, only players belonging to your country can represent your country.

I thought anyone who took the slightest interest whatsoever in international football would know that, but apparently not. I really should know better; every time I convince myself that, seriously, people couldn't be THAT stupid ... someone always proves me wrong.

Yes I do know that. Im just saying they should "bend" the rules a tad bit. Northern Ireland and Ireland are like practically the same country ;)

Baldour Ni is a messy situation and so we could be Pure irish or british, in fact we can have dual citizenship and arguably we soould all be part of one whole ireland. Fifa rules just dont cut it with us ;)
