    Fantastic. 5 excelllent penalties. Crucial save from Rogers. I often slate him in Europe but he came up big there. Sheriff were so poor, but Dundalk managed them very well. No howlers, no humiliatingly embarassing goals gifted away. Great stuff. But they'll have to play a little better to beat KI. That's not a cheap cut, but if they want to avoid penalties, even though they came out the right side tonight, they'l want to score a few, one would imagine, given that KI have shown their firepower tionight too. Shields grew stronger and more determined as the game went on. Great closing down and tracking back from Hoban, played well tonight despite being kicked around the place. Sheriff got what they deserved.

    Really pleased for Dundalk. No Irish team will ever have a better chance of qualifying for group stages. Really kept their nerve for the penalties.

    If ye make the group stages, the Americans will be around for a good while longer. Is that what Dundalk fans want? Both the fans, the club and the americans want Europa Group stages, but some actually need it.

    Imagine at the start of the season being told that a Dundalk side managed by an Italian kids summer camp manager based in the US would face a team from the Faroe Islands at home in a one off game to reach the Europa League group stages. This is some year! Fair play to Dundalk, great win tonight

    Earlier in the Loi Shiels looked like he had legs of lead. Today even in extratime he just kept going and going, after his fresh air kick that could have cost Dundalk the game, he had the energy to unleash a brilliant penalty. Dundalk deserved that win and Shiels should be called into the Irish squad, even if he doesn't get to play in the matches.

    It's the AVIVA for the KI match, according to Dundalk's CEO.

    Okie doke... I hate myself for even bothering here...

    Yeah I was kind of referring to the fact it would be strange to see the 3rd placed team in Ireland as group stage competitors in Europe as both previous times it has been the leagues dominant club (within that season - I am aware of recent title history). A nice novelty it would be.
