Maybe we will look at this win in Baku as a turning point but there are still issues for Stephen Kenny to solve

Well, that was more like it. Yes, Azerbaijan are ranked 117th in the world, but last night in Baku, Ireland played with a little bit of anger, with a little bit of fire in their bellies.

Maybe it goes back to the Callum Robinson stuff during the week, maybe it goes back to all the criticism that has come the squad’s way, yes, from me and others.
