Does anyone do mind-bending qualification processes for their tournaments better than UEFA?

I didn't just mean the aesthetic quality of the football. I meant Ireland's performances and ability to be competitive. Ireland were genuinely competitive at Italia 90, a real pain in the arse to play against, and there were no 3-0 or 4-0 humblings or playing teams who had already qualified, bar the ten minute truce at the end of the Dutch game.

But, yeah, it's always better to qualify regardless. Keep the ranking as high as possible.

RTE doing their best to overhype the Icelanders by saying they were semi finalists the last tournament.



I think whoever wrote that needs to dig the old Euro 2016 wallchart out of the attic.

Why do Ireland bother to enter only to qualify and promote the game and possibly move up the rankings .
Aim high lads

Good to see James McCarthy back, even though he's been underwhelming for large parts of his Irish career.
