Poll: Is there still hope for Ireland at Euro 2012?

WE PINNED AN awful lot of expectation on the basis that we would win at least a point from Croatia.

But an unsighted ‘keeper here and a dodgy offside decision there and we are bottom of the group with the last two World Champions standing between us and the quarter finals.

So, whaddya say, Ireland? Can it be done?

Poll Results:

Don't be stupid. It's all over bar the drinking. (2213)
Don't be stupid. Of course it can be done. Spain don't even play with strikers and we have the measure of Italy. (952)
