The 22 of June 2016 is the day of a big match between the national football teams of France and Ireland. The winner of the match grants the path to ¼ of EURO 2016, so the stakes are really high! What’s interesting, The Republic of Ireland have scored only once against France since October 1981, but the French players can expect an extremely tight encounter.
Let’s take a look at both teams and the games they’ve already participated in this championship.
Currently, the France’s national team remains unbeaten in this Championship. They’ve played 2-0 against Romania, the same score with Albania and a draw with the team of Switzerland.
Speaking of previous championships, France has won seven of the nations' 16 meetings while Ireland has won four.
Also, France (1984) is one of three nations that have ever won a EURO as hosts, along with Spain (1964) and Italy (1968).
No doubt, France is pretty strong this year. You realize it even more when you think of Pogba’s speed, Payet’s accuracy and the skills of Girou.
The Republic of Ireland
The Republic of Ireland has sent a pretty strong national football team this year. Yes, their group stage results don’t look good. They’ve lost 1 game, played a draw against Sweden, but they’ve beaten the Italians!
But the Irish are competing at their third EURO and have progressed from the group stage for the first time. It’s a significant improvement on UEFA EURO 2012 where they lost all three fixtures.
This is also the Ireland's first game in Lyon.
Although the countries have met 12 times in World Cup qualifying fixtures (with France winning six and Ireland three) they have yet to lock horns in the UEFA European Championship.
Let’ hope this team will show a good teamwork this time.
