Denmark not a terrible draw for Ireland. N iron biggest winners here out of the unseeded teams.

Didn't they get Switzerland? o_O
Yeh. Could've gotten Croatia or Italy, and I think Switzerland is weaker than Denmark. The Swiss had an impressive point total in group, but aside from Portugal, the group was quite weak. Anyway, we shall see...

They did beat Portugal once as well. I reckon we’ve done well getting the Danes. By the sound of it Eriksen dragged them through.

He played a big part definitely but there are a few other players to watch out for. I would have fancied our chances against any of the unseeded teams in those play offs, so am very happy with this draw. Can I come and watch it at your house Dougs? :D

We're clearly better at it. Think Eriksen needs his recent illness to come back next month.
I'll have to take your word for that as I haven't seen you play since Steve Carr was claiming he would win things at Newcastle. I am sure we will find out in November.
