The Republic of Ireland claimed a point in their opening EURO 2016 game against Sweden but there is a feeling that it should have been all three after an encouraging performance.

Did Martin O’Neill get his substitutions right and should James McCarthy’s underwhelming performance be the catalyst for changes in midfield for the next two fixtures?

Paul discusses the impact that the absence of Jonathan Walters could have on the game against Belgium, while Ger fills us in on some of the progress being made at schoolboy level with many wondering where the next Wes Hoolahan is going to come from.

There’s also a group-by-group round up of the action so far, and there’s plenty to look forward to over the coming week or so, starting with the England and Wales game on Thursday.
