I thought Andy Reid looked sharp when he came on, and I also thought that Jason Byrne was able to compete at this level.
But as has been mentioned above, at least it was a friendly, and at least he experimented. I was cringing for Kevin Doyle when he kept saying in his post match interview that "they were better then us, and that's why they are going to the world cup and we're not." He said that twice!
So, in summary, maybe it was not such a bad thing to lose this friendly, it shows that we cannot just expect to win, and Chile weren't that bad on the night, it wasn't as if we were beaten by a weak team.
