Nasty draw for the Republic, hopefully we'll raise our game against big-name opposition as we've tended to in the past. Spain is obviously a nightmare but the positive is that the well-known counter-strategy to tika-taka is pretty much the system we play all the time anyway. We have a pretty good record against Italy and it'll be great craic for Trapattoni, Croatia have been really inconsistent for the past few years so hopefully the team that shows up for the tournament will be crap enough to lose to us.
I know it's all clutching at straws really. I should be disappointed with that draw but really I'm just pants-wettingly excited about getting to see Ireland take on Spain, Italy and Croatia at the Euros.
