Green is The Colour

Green is The Colour

Tonight's choice was a no-brainer. Ireland are playing one of their
most important matches ever. If they can beat France tonight
they qualify for the 2010 World Cup. They go into the Stade de France
one nil down but a green army of fans will be there to cheer them on.
Come on you boys in green!

Update - We Woz Robbed
Sadly we lost thanks to a French goal which should have been disallowed due to a handball.

A cruel and outrageous result, but I like the logo close-up.

Sorry about the loss. There will be other opportunities. The green is a winner though.

So sorry for Ireland! Great green colour shot and idea!

I thought of you when I saw the result and was saddened to watch "how" Ireland was eliminated. It's a very nice image though!
Maaike Huizer19-Nov-2009 14:12
I'm sorry Ireland didn't qualify.
But at least it left you with a good picture for the title.
Neal Nye19-Nov-2009 12:27
Bitter disappointment! At least it didn't derail this fine photo for today.

alas! This injustice can happen. Next time better!

excellent shot of this proud badge..I saw the highlights at work..the winning goal was a scandalous affair...Thierry Henry clearly handled and even cupped the ball to keep it in play before delivering the killer cross...a real heart-breaker for the Irish..

Brilliant Green.
Barbara Heide19-Nov-2009 00:34
sorry for the Irish... apparently it was not a very nice game...
so sorry! I hate it when the French play very badly and manage to win...
Jola Dziubinska19-Nov-2009 00:09
1:1 was not enough, sorry about that. Nice patriotic green.
Stephanie18-Nov-2009 23:37
Too bad, the luck 'o the Irish couldn't pull it off. I'll keep my fingers crossed for them next year!
Gorgeous green! :-)
