Soccer dream is still alive

Fortune favoured Irish football fans last night with our victory over Armenia -- but it was certainly a nailbiting affair.

We have now booked our place in the Euro 2012 play-offs with the help of an own goal and the dubious dismissal of the Armenian goalkeeper. They may call it the luck of the Irish but, at the end of the day, a win is still a win and the dream lives on.
