Ireland Wins The Right To Host Euro 2020 Games They Won’t Qualify For



THE FAI have had cause for celebration following news they will host four games as part of the EURO 2020 competition Ireland won’t qualify for.

Despite the 2020 incarnation of the Euros having 104 teams playing in 21 groups it is predicted Ireland will fail to get out of their qualifying group which includes San Marino, Andorra, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Gibraltar and Brazil.

Champagne was being sipped in the FAI offices following the good news with John Delaney circulating emails to staff telling them how great he was.

“By 2020 we predict there will close to two decent professional footballers playing at a high level, so really the fact we’ll be hosting some games are great,” a proud Delaney told WWN. The 2020 tournament will offer the Irish soccer public their first chance to football played at the venue.

However, despite the obvious cause for celebration some football experts have cautioned the Irish public not to get carried away.

“These players coming through that Delaney talks about are subject to the Paul McShane test,” explained sports journalist Kevin O’Donovan, “if we judge Paul McShane to be a decent player then we must disregard any claims that we have players coming through”.

It is still unclear what specific bribe got UEFA to endorse Dublin as a venue for the 2020 tournament, but UEFA have confirmed the immediate banning of the new Cadbury’s ad involving Eamon Dunphy and John Giles was non-negotiable.
