The Republic did themselves proud last night after confirming their place at the Euro 2012 finals, to be held in Poland and Ukraine next summer.
You know, I have a bit of Irish in me and to be honest I'm fed up with some of the English players so I might just put on the green for next summer, unless the two sides meet, then I have to go all white - it is just natural.
So, with the full list of qualified teams below, how many Aston Villa players will be taking part. We had seven former and one current player play in the England match against Sweden last night - do you think we could make a full team out of hwo takes part next summer - I think so.
Qualified teams for Euro 2012
- Poland (co-hosts)
- Ukraine (co-hosts)
- Spain (holders)
- Czech Republic
- Republic of Ireland
Expect a Germany v Spain final unless they meet before that, but basically one of those will win. Unless the Irish get really lucky.
