AARON Connolly believes critics of Stephen Kenny will be forced to eat their words as he offered up a glowing endorsement of the Ireland manager's credentials ahead of the crunch European Championship play-off game in Slovakia on Thursday.

Speaking exclusively to Independent.ie at an EA Sports event to launch the new FIFA 2021 game, Brighton striker Connolly suggested snipes from former Ireland players such as Jason McAteer questioning Kenny's credentials to be Ireland boss are misplaced.
