France and Ireland have some serious history behind them with the infamous handball that took place in France.
Now, Ireland get a chance at redemption as the two teams meet in the Euro Cup knockout round.
The hosts have had some drama behind them in group play.
It started off with an 87th minute goal to knock off Romania 2-1. They then took down Albania 2-0 with a pair of late goals before drawing 0-0 with Switzerland.
The last time France met with Ireland in French territory, they also had other drama in their game. Thierry Henry clearly used his hand to knock a ball in the back of the net, which ended up costing Ireland their 2010 World Cup hopes.
The host nation doesn’t have much success in the past. There has only been one host team to make the final since France won the tournament at home in 1984.
France has made a living with the late goals. 87th and 88 minute goals to take the lead sparked France to the top of the group. Look for France to try to get out to an early lead this time around.
They have dominated possession in all three games. An early strike can allow them to play the possession game and wear this Ireland defense down.
There has to be a little revenge on the minds of this Ireland team. They were denied a ticket to the World Cup in 2010 on French soil after the clear handball.
Ireland’s trek to the knockout round was tough. They drew with Sweden 1-1 thanks to an own goal late. After getting knocked around by Belgium 3-0, they needed a win over group winners Italy to advance. Ireland got the first strike and held on, to advance.
Stoke City striker Jonathan Walters, who was injured in the opening game against Sweden, is still OUT here in the quarterfinal game.
Martin O’Neill is expected to stick with the same lineup that won 1-0 against the Italians.
Expected line up: Randolph – Coleman, Duffy, Keogh, Ward – Hendrick, McCarthy, Brady, McClean – Murphy, Long.
Free France vs. Italy Euro 2016 Prediction:
This one is France’s to lose really.
They are far more talented and have the home field behind them. However, their inability to get an early lead and let opponents hang around is something that can seriously hurt them here in the knockout stage.
4* Free Euro 2016 Betting Pick: Under
This game should be like France’s entire tournament.
They have sat around and played possession, trying to wear the opposition down.
Expect them to that here and grab a late goal to secure their fate.
