O & # 39; Neill admits disappointment in performance in Ireland


Chief of the Irish Republic Martin O'Neill said that Michael Obafemi now has every chance to play in the conflict on Monday night in Denmark.

The 18-year-old striker remained on the bench for the friendly stadium stadium of Aviva on Thursday evening, as he handed over his upcoming future to the Republic of Ireland before the match began.

O'Neill acknowledged that he was tempted by a young man in the second half against the North, but decided to be more experienced Scott Hogan.

What he said, Derriman did not rule out to bring Obafemy to Aarhus, where his chances of showing up grew due to Sean Maguire, who injured his spine only 13 minutes after he came down from the bench to the north.

Before Obafemi clearly explained his international intentions, O'Neill poured cold water in the look of bringing it into line, insisting that he wanted the teenager to give him time and space to make a decision. Now, that scenario has changed completely.

"I think he should come to Denmark," he said. "He made this commitment, so let's take it. I think he has a chance to perform.

"I said at the beginning of the week that if we were to dedicate, I would probably take him to Denmark. If he did not give that commitment, then it really did not make sense.

"He made a call, he was really up to him, the treatment he had on a minor level and the way he received it from the senior players [helped].

"Of course there are promises, it is obvious that he has a job, I think he is very poor, but we hope that in a not too distant future he will be a very decent player for us. I surely think that it requires too much from him and he will immediately respond to goals . "

O'Neill acknowledged that the Irish Ruthless Assault is a cause for concern, but is guilty of another work out of his charges.

Boos rang around the stadium at the last whistle, as domestic fans showed their frustration over poor showing against neighbors.

"We have not made enough progress," he added.

"As for promotion, we should work better. I am a manager, that is my responsibility.

"Overall I think the disappointment will be with the fans, they pay the money and we should do better."
