Irish Harte hails supporters role

Posted On 9th August 2016

Irish goalkeeper David Harte knows that only two wins from their last two group games will keep them in the hunt for a quarter-final spot and is relishing the challenge ahead.

They lost to Germany 3-2 today meaning they can only move on to the knock-out stages with wins over Canada and Argentina in their remaining matches.

“We always potentially knew that it could come down to a must-win against Canada but now it’s two must-win games if we are to progress to the quarter-finals.”

They will do so with a large set of supporters who have made themselves heard in the games so far and Harte has loved their passion.

“The guys are in good stead and everyone is relishing the opportunity and if our crowd keeps turning up in more and more numbers each day in voice like they were, it was a phenomenal feeling to play in front of.

“To travel the whole way to South America and to have that many green shirts is a really special feeling!”
