Trapattoni delighted with another clean sheet

Irish boss Giovanni Trapattoni was delighted with his defence as the side kept their fifth successive clean sheet in last night’s goalless friendly against Croatia.

Holding a strong side that included Tottenham trio Luka Modric, Niko Kranjcar and Vedran Corluka scoreless for 90 minutes was a great performance and the manager was very pleased with his team.

“When the players are incisive we can make a difference. In qualifying we have to do this,” the Italian said.

Regarding the clean sheet Trapattoni said: “I am happy for this.

“Before the game, when we prepare, I repeat the same lesson because when I was first here, two or three little situations were changing our results.

“The team has improved very much in these situations.”
