Despite only one competitive victory at home during his tenure, Stephen Kenny expressed optimism that “we’ll transform the Aviva into a fortress.”
The third seed for the Euro 2024 qualifying draw, according to Stephen Kenny, presents hurdles, but Ireland can rise to the occasion.
By winning their Nations League group or accruing a significant number of points as runners-up, Kenny’s team had the opportunity to move into the top two.
Instead, they are aware that a loss will send them to League C as they take on Armenia tonight.
Irish supporters may expect a convincing win, and if Kenny’s team doesn’t qualify for the playoffs next season, there’s a good probability that finishing third in the group will be sufficient.
To avoid a tough opponent, however, favors from other parties would be required, and automatic qualification is the only option for Ireland to genuinely be in charge of its own destiny.
Before the draw, Kenny and his crew will be concerned since England and France are probable second seeds.
Although England and France are second seeds, Kenny claims that they are superior to some of the top-seeded teams. “Some of the top-seeded teams aren’t quite that good. That might equalize. We’ll see what results from the draw.
We’re going to get better, in my opinion, because of our rate of development, our developing camaraderie, and the connection with the team’s fervent fan base.
“This place is going to be turned into a true stronghold here. That occurred when Scotland was involved.
Every night, we want to instill that desire, foster it, and motivate the players to outstanding success.
To earn a spot in the top two is our only goal.
Kenny’s victory over Scotland is his lone competitive victory in Dublin. By midway through the season, Ireland’s World Cup qualification campaign was over after losses at home to Luxembourg and Azerbaijan.
