Spain vs Ireland, Euro 2012: Open Thread
Few things would be more satisfying to see in this Euro 2012 tournament than Ireland beating Spain. While the Spaniards are current World Cup and European champions, the Irish fans and players have the belief that they can come up big in this game and do their best to win something. Whether or not they’ll draw or even win the game, we won’t know until later. But this Irish team, and the Irish fans, will not go down easy.
Spain, on the other hand, is still complaining about the quality of the pitch in Gdansk. They have the players to thrash Ireland 6-0 or 7-0. But with a formation that now includes a designated striker (Torres), will they come up the second better team?
