first_imgStar goalie Shay Given and the rest of the 2012 Euro Championship squad are set to earn a fortune – if they can defend their 4-0 lead over Estonia at Lansdowne Road tomorrow night.In fact the 22-man squad which is picked for the finals in Poland the Ukraine next year will share in a €4M windfall.That’s a massive €181,818,182 EACH! But money is the farthest thing from the mind of the Lifford man and his teammates for the second leg of the qualifier.And anyone who thinks that next year’s tournament could be Shay’s international swan song better think again.Giovanni Trapattoni will beg Ireland’s Shay and other senior stars not to quit after the Euro 2012 finals.Shay, Robbie Keane, Richard Dunne and Damien Duff could all bow out on a high after the European Championship in Poland and Ukraine. The quartet have amassed 395 caps between them and have played key roles in driving Ireland to the finals.Keane, 31, and Given, 35, keep dropping hints that this may be their last Irish campaign while Duff and Dunne, both 32, could follow suit.But Trap wants them all to stay.© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.

Hernandez saves day for White Sox

first_img Williams didn’t need any reminding. The last player added to the postseason roster, Hernandez got the biggest outs for Chicago on Friday when he pitched out of a bases-loaded, none-out jam to help the White Sox beat Boston, 5-3, and sweep the defending World Series champs out of the playoffs. “We’re not done. I don’t think we’re satisfied,” said Paul Konerko, who hit a tiebreaking homer in the sixth. “I think we match up well in this next series with anybody.” The White Sox lost in the ’19 and ’59 Series and the ’83, ’93 and 2000 playoffs. With the three-game sweep, they are the first team to advance to the second round of the playoffs. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

But I’m the guy who signed him and go back to your notes and take a look at the reason why.” Hernandez, who made the roster instead of talented rookie Brandon McCarthy, is 9-3 in the postseason and was on the mound to finish off the Red Sox for the Yankees in the 1999 ALCS. This time, he helped the White Sox win their first playoff series since Shoeless Joe Jackson’s team won it all way back in 1917. Two years later, Jackson’s “Black Sox’ took payoffs from gamblers to throw the Series. Eight men were out banned from baseball for life and every White Sox player since has lived with a longer but lesser-known “curse’ than the supposed one the Red Sox busted when they ended their 86-year drought last season. “Finally, we make another big step,” manager Ozzie Guillen said. “They have waited a long time for this moment. And this team is making it happen this year.” The White Sox, who let Cleveland erase most of a 15-game lead in the AL Central, will have home-field advantage in the AL championship series against the New York Yankees or Angels. center_img BOSTON — Orlando Hernandez bounced through the Chicago White Sox clubhouse and headed for general manager Kenny Williams. The boss was already drenched with champagne. “I told you so!” Hernandez shouted. “I told you so!” last_img read more
