It could have been us
I'm sure that those of you who have been following the World Cup matches cannot fail to be impressed by Ireland's progress through the tournament. But the question that is probably on all our lips is "Could we have done that?" 

If we look at things realistically I think you have to answer Yes we probably could. Taking the current performance of the team, a win and two draws against World class opposition couldn't have been a fluke they didn't all have bad days.

Ireland drew with Germany and made it to the final 16. Wales beat Germany and I bet we are all saying, "We could have done that", Roll on Euro 2004 in September.
