Ireland vs. Denmark World Cup First Leg This Saturday @ 2:45pm
Hibernia Bar is going to air the Ireland vs. Denmark World Cup game this Saturday at 2:45pm. You can expect 20oz. Guinness perfectly poured as well as our amazing Irish fare which will be served all day long (our kitchen is open late) so you can continue to party after Ireland moves forward after winning the game against Denmark.
Ireland stormed its way into the playoff round thanks to a win over Gareth Bale-less Wales on the last day of group play, and it’ll look to make good on that new life vs. the Danes, who are led by Tottenham standout Christian Eriksen. These two hardly play one another, with Ireland holding a 5-3-5 advantage in the all-time meetings. It won the last two by a combined 7-0 scoreline, but the games came in 2002 and 2007–hardly an indicator of present fortunes. Ireland’s last appearance in the World Cup qualifying playoff round resulted in Thierry Henry’s “non-handball” and heartbreaking elimination at the hands of France in 2009.
