Eriksen hits hatrick to sink Ireland

Eriksen hits hatrick to sink Ireland

The defeat means that the Irish will not be going to the World Cup in the summer following a 0-0 draw in the first leg in Scandinavia.

Denmark goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel has admitted he is "gutted" that Ireland won't be at the World Cup after the Danes knocked them out of contention for Russian Federation 2018. They play football - we saw against Real Madrid that it suits him very well to play there.

"'Thank you very much for giving us space', because they locked us down in the first leg very well and Eriksen was out of the game, and today he was fantastic."
The two goals we conceded within a couple of minutes knocked us.

"I am really disappointed", said O'Neill.

"We're in this stage here and we thought we could win this game, but we didn't win the game, we were well beaten in the end and we have to take this punishment". "They deserved to go through after beating us convincingly".

"The disappointment is obviously very, very strong tonight because we haven't been able to do it, but I have to commend the players on getting this far".

Cromer said both sales had already being under negotiation and were not the result of the Airbus venture. EgyptAir chairman and CEO Safwat Musallam said the planes will help the airline to modernize its fleet.

"It's not often I score a hat-trick so of course it's incredible taking your country to the World Cup with three goals away in a play-off".

David Meyler was suspended for the clash in Copenhagen but is eligible to play tonight, and Brady feels he will feature: "The only thing I'd say that's nearly certain is that Meyler will come back into midfield".

Sub Shane Long threatened to get one back for the Boys in Green but there was still time for none other than Nicolas Bendtner to rub salt into the gaping Irish wound, converting a spot-kick after the ex-Arsenal man had been felled in the box by McClean. I know how nervous I was all day and night.

So effective is it as a motivational tool that Martin O'Neill could do worse than show it to his players before kick-off in the Aviva Stadium tonight; it has certainly done the trick for us in any case.

"Mentally I have grown up".
