Glenn Whelan slaughtered on Twitter after Ireland’s disappointing draw

Ireland produced a disappointing, below par performance in their 1-1 draw in Georgia tonight in Tbilisi, despite taking an early lead through Shane Duffy.

Georgia dominated possession for long periods, and in a familiar pattern, the boys in green struggled to retain possession when under pressure.

Valeri Kazaishvili tucked away a deserved equalizer for the hosts after 34 minutes, and despite several late chances, Ireland were unable to nick a winner at the Boris Paichadze Dinamo Arena.

It is easy to pick out individual displays for scrutiny, but the already divisive Glenn Whelan – who captained the side on his 82nd international appearance – performed poorly on the night, and has received a hard time on Twitter as a result.
