Austria v Republic of Ireland Ernst-Happel-Stadion / World Cup 2018 Qualifier / 12th November 2016 Oh, it’s international week. ‘It’s boring,’ ‘Can’t wait for the Premier League (best league in the world) to return’, ‘I hope *insert star player for club team* doesn’t get injured’ etc. My Twitter feed is a constant stream of ire … Continue reading
