We won't let people down says McGeady

IRELAND expects, and Aiden McGeady has promised to deliver against Spain tomorrow night.

The Spartak Moscow man has challenged his team-mates to come up with a result against the world champions as the Irish players head into what will|surely be the biggest game of their careers.

But winger McGeady insists that this Ireland side will not finish up with zero points from the tournament.

“All we can try to do is to change people's minds in the next couple of games. People expect us to get some points so we have to, even with Spain as our opponents,” McGeady said.

“I'm sure they are the best team I will have played against.

“They are world champions, European champions and they have top players.

“We still have two games left and anything can happen,” added McGeady.

“Despite the result against Croatia, we can take positives from the game.

“We scored a goal right after Croatia did - that's important,” added McGeady, who remains unconcerned by the fact that Spain are likely to start against Ireland, as they did against Italy, without a recognised striker.

“For the style they have they don't need clear strikers. Anyway, Fabregas and Silva can play as strikers.”
