"It was a terrible game, but it's three great points," said McCarthy, the hard-won 1:0 in Ireland, in Gibraltar. 20 defeats in 20 Games and a goal difference of 5:103 the balance of Gibraltar was in the two previously played qualifications for Euro 2016 and the 2018 world Cup. At the start of the third campaign, the number 194 sniffed the world ranking list of a Sensation.
"I knew it would be a difficult game," says McCarthy. That it came out so bad, he would not have imagined. "I hated every Minute of this game."
"We can play better,"
If not Ireland's Goalie Randolph Darren had a head to the ball from Roy Chipolina mirakulös parried, who knows how the game would be lost. Shortly thereafter, Jeff Hendrick scored the redeeming goal for Ireland (49.). The victory was deserved, even if the Irish were not able to playfully convince. On Tuesday, after Switzerland and Denmark, and nominally the third-strongest Team in the group D, at home, Georgia is located.
From the miserable performance against Gibraltar McCarthy draws a little bit of hope. "Georgia, look at our game in the Video and probably thinks we're desperate. But we can play better."
