Keane coy about Ireland future

Nov 20, 2015, 02:27

"There was never any doubt about Jon". That was why I was trying hard to keep him (at Ipswich).

And that miss was to prove crucial as Ireland then doubled their lead after 70 minutes, and it was that man Walters who was again their hero.

"With the wee disappointment there, it nearly felt that we had to take the baton on and carry it forward".

"We had won a big game in Georgia in the opening game".

So we have to play this cagily. "We'll have that conversation in a few months".

"Whatever we have, or whatever we're short of in terms of options, we make up for it in terms of work-rate, desire and hunger". Bosnia manager Mehmed Bazdarevic made three changes to his team with Sead Kolasinac, Ongjen Vranjes and Haris Medujanin starting as he returned to a typical 4-2-3-1 formation, with Edin Dzeko spearheading the attack.

"Don't be writing these boys off, they've all contributed". The winners and runners-up in each group will qualify for the knockout phase as well as the four best third-place sides - effectively meaning that only eight teams will be eliminated in the group phase.

But when they returned from the pitch to the dressing room, they were given an impromptu visit by SUPERMAN, who was subsequently drowned in champagne. "These players deserve great credit".

"I always think the players pick the team and the squad".

"Listen, I don't want to be writing them off because I know for a fact they'll be believing they can get in that starting XI in France".

The Irish players were allowed to party around Dublin's nightspots until the early hours after their Bosnia heroics at Aviva Stadium on Monday night. "I can't praise them enough".

He said: "I'm going to meet Martin over the next few weeks to have a look". Martin knows I still have that ambition to get back into club management but I'm enjoying my role here. "Obviously I want to stay on for the Euros, but we'll play it by ear". "I have always said I have been very, very lucky".

But they were poor throughout the two games and had only a snatched Senad Lulic chance to show for it as Walters arrived at the back post to coolly finish a deflected free kick from Robbie Brady, Ireland's scorer in the first leg. "It's great to be back". Keane's walkout on the eve of the 2002 World Cup in Japan and South Korea, where he famously compared the team's training-ground to a vehicle park, has gone down in Irish folklore, and O'Neill has admitted that allowing him to return to the fold was one of his biggest decisions as boss.
