EURO 2008: Slovakia vs. Ireland

Well, here we go again with the continuing qualifiers for the Euro. Vittek is out, so that is a big loss and reduces our hopes from slim to anorexic. The weather has been bad, so Tehelne Pole will be rather wet and uncomfortable. Referees are Italians, but we don't even have enough money to buy milk, so we can't bribe them, sadly.

Here is the predicted line-up:

Senecký - Krajčík, Klimpl, J. Ďurica, Greško - Žofčák, Sapara, Hamšík, Čech - Hološko, Šesták

I really like the look of that midfield, even though Svento's absence will sting. Zofcak and Cech are very capable players. I expect a lot from the latter, strong player technically. Hopefully Holosko's great pace causes problems for the Irish, and Sestak continues his rich vein of form.

No Mintal in the line-up, is he injured again? Defense looks a bit weak, where are Michalik and Had. Last chance for you guys in this qualification, hope you can beat Irish and bring them to earth

Ireland leads 1-0 already, 7th-minute goal from Stephen Ireland.

Futbalportal got it wrong. This is the line-up:

Senecký - Krajčík, J. Ďurica, Klimpl, Čech - Hamšík - Šesták, Sapara, Greško- Mintál, Hološko

We deserve at least a point, so it will be disappointing again if we don't get it.

For once, we get a break. Great shot from Marek.

It douses our hopes, but losing at home would have been a sour feeling, so at least we salvaged that.

was it after they their first goal after 7 minutes??? I assume not. Dissapointing that you couldnt beat them at home, given how Czech's form at the moment you still had a good chance if you won
