Wales defeat a ‘very cruel’ Euro 2016 exit, says Northern Ireland boss

first_imgNorthern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill was left to rue a ‘cruel’ exit from Euro 2016 after an own-goal ended his side’s journey.O’Neill’s side had already defied the odds to line up in this all-British last 16 clash but were good value throughout the narrowest of 1-0 defeats, edging the play for extended periods without creating clear-cut chances.Wales suffered similarly in the final third but took the spoils – and a historic quarter-final against Hungary or Belgium – when Gareth Bale’s teasing cross was prodded over the line by Northern Ireland defender Gareth McAuley in the 75th minute.For O’Neill, for their superb travelling support and for the passionate McAuley it was a bitter denouement to the nation’s first major tournament in 30 years.“I felt it was a very tight game. It’s just a very, very cruel way to lose the game,” he said.“We didn’t deserve to lose the game…certainly with that nature (of goal).“Not many people gave us any chance of doing anything in the tournament but we came within a whisker of getting to the last eight. I don’t think it would have been undeserved had we got that.“It’s difficult to quantify and reflect on the tournament as a whole at this minute, but the players have been tremendous in their effort, their commitment, their pride in playing for their country.“It’s been a fantastic experience for everyone but when it ends the way it did today it’s very cruel. I don’t think we got what we deserved.”He was rightly proud of his side’s efforts in France – they won one game from four but proved resilient and well organised throughout.As for McAuley, whose outstretched leg only prevented the waiting Hal Robson-Kanu finishing the job from close range anyway, O’Neill had two messages: first that he is not to blame and second that he wants the 36-year-old to play on.“I’m not going to point the finger at him. I’m not going to blame him in any shape or form,” said the manager.“He had a split-second decision to make, unfortunately it went against us.“Gareth has not only had a great tournament he has been great for me over the last four years.“Hopefully he continues to play at international level. He has still got a couple of years left in him at this level and hopefully that will be the case.” 1 Michael O’Neill: Northern Ireland manager grateful for superb travelling support last_img read more

MAN OF THE MATCH COLEMAN: ‘WE DESERVED TO BEAT GREECE’

first_imgMAN OF THE MATCH SEAMUS COLEMANIRELAND defender Seamus Coleman was very disappointed following his Ireland’s 1-0 friendly defeat to Greece at the Aviva.The Killybegs man insisted Ireland should have won the game, and expressed his frustration at having a strong penalty claim turned down when Konstantinos Stafylidis appeared to handle in the area.“I thought we played very well, I thought we deserved to win the game. We passed the ball very well at times and we’re just disappointed to get nothing from it,” said the Everton player. “I thought we definitely had a penalty claim in the first minute of the game. I thought it was a stonewall penalty but I thought we played all right. Just disappointed to get nothing from it.”Jose Holebas 29th minute goal condemned Giovanni Trapattoni’s side to defeat in what was their final fixture of 2012.Coleman said Ireland can be pleased with the past year, despite the results.“We qualified for a European Championship for the first time in 25 years,” he said, “we can move on from here and remain positive.” Captain John O’Shea praised Coleman’s performance and also felt Ireland deserved a victory.The Sunderland defender said: “It’s a step forward but we’re obviously disappointed. For the goal I should have done better, I let him come off just too easy but I think we should have been a couple of goals up by then.“We had the penalty shout early on and the way we started the game we probably deserved to be ahead but credit to Greece.“They haven’t been beaten in a few games and they’ve put in a determined, defensive performance.“In the second half we probably could have done things a little better quicker and better in the final third to create more clear cut chances but we had the confidence to knock it about and anytime we got Seamus on the ball down the flanks, we looked very dangerous.” MAN OF THE MATCH COLEMAN: ‘WE DESERVED TO BEAT GREECE’ was last modified: November 15th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:MAN OF THE MATCH COLEMAN: ‘WE DESERVED TO BEAT GREECE’last_img read more
