‘I probably owe him a few drinks!’ – Hoolahan hails Ireland hero Brady

first_imgWes Hoolahan left the Stade Pierre Mauroy intent on buying Robbie Brady a drink for sparing him a dressing room inquest.The 34-year-old playmaker was presented with the perfect opportunity to fire the Republic of Ireland into the knockout stage of Euro 2016 when he went one-on-one with Italy keeper Salvatore Sirigu six minutes from time in Lille, only to come off second best.However, he made amends within seconds when he clipped the ball over the top of the Italian rearguard for Norwich team-mate Brady to head Ireland to a 1-0 victory and into a last-16 clash with host nation France.Hoolahan said: “I was thinking when it happened ‘Oh no, what’s going to happen at the end?’, but luckily enough Robbie got the goal.“I just kept my concentration and thought another chance might come or I might be able to create something.“There are always going to be ups and downs in football – that’s life. You need to stay focused and in control to the last minute. Luckily enough Robbie has got on the end of it and I probably owe him a few drinks.”Hoolahan was used only as a substitute in Lille after starting the Republic’s first two games took its toll physically.However, he remains one of the key men in Martin O’Neill’s squad, a significant development from the days when predecessor Giovanni Trapattoni was not convinced of his value.As a result, he was winning just his 33rd cap against Italy, although he admits his experiences in France over the last few days have more than made up for the years of disappointment.He said: “Yes, it does. The last 10 days have been brilliant, just being around everybody and experiencing this. It has been a great honour to play for my country, to play the first two games and then come on tonight.“To be a part of it is amazing.” 1 Ireland celebrate Robbie Brady’s winner against Italy last_img read more
