Kevin Doyle delighted with win
Kevin Doyle was delighted with Ireland’s 2-1 win over Paraguay in the friendly international match played at the RDS in Dublin yesterday
Doyle and Liam Lawrence scored in the first half as Ireland recorded a victory against their World Cup-bound opponents.
“It’s a win, they’re going to the World Cup and we’re not so it’s a good win for us,” Doyle reflected..
“They’re going to be well trained and we beat them pretty convincingly.
“We looked pretty solid and played well.”
Paraguay pulled a goal back through Lucas Barrios in the second half and became more of a threat, with Doyle admitting the home side perhaps began to feel the pace.
“It’s been a good few weeks since some of us had a game and maybe it started to show a little,” the Wolves forward added.
“They’re the opposite and they were probably a bit sharper come the end.
“But it was a chance for us to be together again, it was another good performance and a good win.
“It all will hopefully count when the European Championship qualifiers come round.”
