Episode 21 - Do We Really Need To Play England Now?

In October, Stephen Kenny became the first Republic of Ireland manager to finish four consecutive competitive internationals without scoring. The team desperately need a goal to ease the already mounting pressure on the new manager. With that in mind, do we really need to face England, the fourth ranked team in the world, right now?

I'm joined by Mark Kennedy of Hawkeye Sidekick and Philip Flanagan of The Bottomless Pit of Football to discuss this week's friendly, the upcoming Nations League fixtures against Wales and Bulgaria, and the U21s final two qualifiers against Iceland and Luxembourg as they bid to become the first Irish U21 side to qualify for the U21 Championships next summer.
