Those 30 rousing minutes in the second half against Poland definitely lifted everyone’s spirits but we’ve still got an awful lot to do to try and claim an automatic qualifying spot. It was really heartening to see that characteristic Martin O’Neill spirit and doggedness reflected in the way the team fought back.
