Trapped by Failure

The Ireland soccer coach Giovanni Trappatoni has been dismissed as from his position after two defeats which effectively means the team can no longer progress to the FIFA World Cup finals in Brazil next year.

Trap as he is known and his assistant Marco Tardelli, a 1982 World Cup winner with the Italian side of 1982, had failed to deliver successs with line ups that compared poorly against earlier sides such as that coached by Jack Charlton in 1988.

Trappatoni said: We leave this country with emotion because we understand the Irish supporters who have a well-deserved international reputation and they have our utmost respect.

Martin O'Neill the former Northern Ireland international is amongst the front runners to take up the vacated position.
