TWEETS: Irish Fans Mock Martin O’Neill For Comments On How To Deal With Christian Eriksen

James Fenton

Republic Of Ireland manager Martin O’Neill knows a lot about the Danish national team after overseeing a 5-1 drubbing at the Aviva Stadium back in November.

Christen Eriksen was the star of the show as Denmark dismantled O’Neill’s Irish side thus clinching their place at the 2018 World Cup at our expense.

It seems the Derryman has learned a few lessons from that fateful night if his analysis on the Denmark v Australia on ITV game today is anything to go by. O’Neill spent half-time advising the Aussies that they’re giving Eriksen too much space and the irony hasn’t gone unnoticed by Irish fans on Twitter….

To be fair, these could well be the instructions O’Neill gave to his team last November and the players may be at fault for not carrying them out. Oh well, maybe we’ll know better next time.
