Elsewhere, it was a good weekend for Irish football with Stephen Kenny’s side holding Belgium to a close at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday.

Stephen Kenny’s men are now unbeaten in their last seven games – a streak that has seen them score 14 goals and keep four clean sheets.

And midfielder Jason Knight thinks they wouldn’t have a good time now without having lived through those dark days.

He said: “I think there is real character in this team to deal with setbacks.


“We went through tough times as a team.

“And I think to get through those times, we’ve built a big, big character in the team.

“You always have difficult moments in your career. And it was a difficult time for the country and for the team.

“But the progression we’ve seen throughout the year or 18 months has been really good. And there’s still more to come.

“I don’t think there is an immediate thing that we can improve on, there will always be a process.

“We are making progress but there are obviously things to improve. But we still believe we can compete with anyone.

“We showed that on Saturday, that we can compete with these great nations.”
