Tues Lunch Update: Martin O’Neill Rejects Style of Play Criticism; Virgil Van Dijk 2 Broken Ribs Report; Kerry’s Darran O’Sullivan Retires

: 10/16/2018 - 13:34

Martin O'Neill has dismissed criticism of the Republic of Ireland's style of play after Denmark midfielder Thomas Delaney accused them of being "primitive".

Delaney's comments came after he saw his side held to a nil-nil draw on Saturday in the Nations League

O'Neill insists lessons have been learned from last month's 4-1 defeat to Wales in Cardiff.

A win against Wales tonight would lift Ireland off the foot of the group,.

Wales are without Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey.

It will be their first competitive match without either the Real Madrid star or Arsenal midfielder since 2008.

 

Holland manager Ronald Koeman claims Virgil van Dijk has been playing with two broken ribs for the last few weeks.

However, the former Everton boss admits it will not stop the world's most expensive centre-back starting for Liverpool at Huddersfield on Saturday.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said, recently, the player’s injury was an issue of bruising which the centre-back suffered before their Champions League victory over Paris St Germain in mid-September

 

Kerry’s Darran O'Sullivan has announced his retirement from inter-county football.

The four-time All-Ireland winner becomes the latest retirement following Donnacha Walsh, Kieran Donaghy and Anthony Maher.

The 32-year-old won four All-Ireland medals, including one as captain in 2009 and was an All-Star in 2011.

 

At the Youth Olympics in Buenos Aires, two Irish boxers can secure at least silver medals today.

Dean Clancy in the semi finals of the men's flyweight division and Dearbhla Rooney in the featherweight class.

 

Today’s racing is in Punchestown from 2.05.
