Take a half day off work and spend £37 to watch a pub team. Oh joy.
Was in Dublin on Wednesday night to watch Northern Ireland take on Scotland at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin in their opening match of the Carling Nations Cup.
It was an impressive stadium, though you should expect all newbuild stadiums to be, but the seats I was in had a shocking view, especially with stewards blocking my view.
Thankfully, there was enough space to go and sit elsewhere and take in the game.
The game itself wasn’t much to write about as Northern Ireland made Scotland look like worldbeaters and never even looked like scoring.
Hopefully, things improve in Serbia next month.
