Re: Euro 2020 play-off draw

One of Georgia, Belarus, Kosovo and Macedonia will be at the finals - based on them thrashing a load of minnows in the Nations League.

NI lost all 4 Nations League games, while Ireland drew 2 and lost 2 - and yet here they both are, still with a chance to make the finals.

I want no part of that. Not played in Belfast since 94, which was OK. 93 was toxic.

Winner - be it Ireland, NI, Bosnia or Slovakia - gets two group games in Dublin, which is where England play in the 2nd round if they win their group. That'll be fun too.
