I found it strange that he was doing an advert for a car on RTE, since he's partially blind.

Watching Ukraine and Kazakhstan here. Was just thinking that we’ve never played Ukraine. The only others in UEFA that I can think of are Slovenia, Azerbaijan and Kosovo. That will change on Saturday when we play Azerbaijan. Is there anyone else in UEFA we haven’t played?

I always think we played Slovenia though during that Balkan group but am always reminded we didn't

And yet we've played an International in Kiev if I'm not mistaken. Played the Soviets there at some stage did we not ?

Yep I looked this up a couple of years ago before we played Belarus in that friendly in Cork. There were five then and there's only those four now, soon to be three.

Would be good away trips as well - which means we're bound to get fookin Denmark, Wales and Georgia again in the Euro 2024 qualifiers, aren't we? LOL

Andreas Brehme si the only player to score 2 penalties in World Cups with both feet. 

Winner in the final of Italia 90 with his right foot, and another in Mexico 86 with his left.

Brazilian Striker hulk has knocked up his niece, admittedly niece via the wife and not a blood relative.
Christmas dinner in his gaff would be some craic

Read that alright, although it's not quite as sleasy as it seems, the wife was a lot older than Hulk (she's in her 50's), Hulk is 34 and the niece is 32

Never knew that!

I only learned the other day that Jay-Jay Okocha is Alex Iwobi's uncle.
