Brian Kerr has heavily criticised the Republic of Ireland’s performances under Martin O’Neill over the past two years, calling the record “abysmal”.
Ireland produced another forgettable performance against Northern Ireland at the Aviva Stadium last night as a number of saves from man-of-the-match, Darren Randolph helped them cling on to a goalless draw.
It is the latest in a string of poor results for Martin O’Neill’s side following losses to Wales and a draw against Denmark in the UEFA Nations League.
Speaking on Virgin Media Sport ahead of last night’s clash in Dublin, Kerr highlighted some of the pitiful statistics around the team.
“Since the start of 2017, we’ve played 17 games. We’ve won three, drew six and lost eight. And in those 17 games, we’ve only twice scored two goals. That’s abysmal”.

Ireland struggled in front on goal once again last night with Callum Robinson isolated for much of the game. Southampton striker, Michael Obafemi, who declared his intention to play in the green shirt yesterday, was left on the bench.
Ireland face a tough trip to Ceres Park to face Denmark in the Nations League on Monday night. Obafemi is expected to travel with the squad.
