    Republic of Ireland V Ukraine - Wednesday, 8 June 2022 - 2022/23 UEFA Nations League

    This is a seriously impressive and dangerous Ukraine side. Not sure they’ll bring this intensity to Dublin though.
    As Irishmen we dilute our sense of nation by depending on the English to bring us our balls

    You just knew Wales would score there.

    Wales really are one of the most poxiest football teams the world has ever seen.

    They're losing and their style will suit Kenny. It'll be their third game in a week. We should be in pole position for the win.

    Good to see VAR ending all controversial refereeing decisions there.

    Anyone able to give an insight why Ukraine didn't get a penalty there?

    It would be a pretty soft penalty if it was given to be fair.

    Wales only score poxy goals not concede them, that’s our job! 😂

    Well he kicked the Ukrainian's foot, stopping him going for the loose ball.

    I don't think the Ukrainian not having possession matters in that case?

    I do think if it went to VAR Wales were in trouble as technically it is a penalty but a ref is unlikely to give it himself as the contact is minimal.

    Maybe because he came up behind him rather than the other way around? I mean I thought it would be given but felt it shouldn't but it's definitely not consistent for what you see given 99% of the time. Nice to see common sense prevail even if it doesn't happen often

    I don't think you could get clearer contact tbh. He kicked his boot and caused him to lose any chance of getting to the loose ball

    If that’s against Harry Kane it’s a pen

    What we wouldn’t give to be able to bring the likes of Brennan Johnson off the bench!

    You can see now their 2nd intense game in a few days is catching up with them.

    Right - we need a decent PL reserve keeper for Wednesday. Anyone know where we can find one?

    Hennessy has been better than superb in this

    It’s not just the physical side of game but the emotional side of it, coming into a NL game after the last few days only 2 days after WC play off is going to be a massively emotional come down.

    After today anyone want to guess how many yards out the Ukraine goal will come Wednesday? Ukraine clearly getting their practice in already!

    They've had an awful lot of wayward long shooting. Perhaps it's tiredness but it's been brutal at times

    Getting them right for Wednesday I bet as we seem to love conceding 40 yard crackers!

    Ukraine just looked emotionally drained this second half.
