Experts believe we will see a widely available vaccine for the coronavirus before we see the next goal scored by the Republic of Ireland. The prediction comes after the boys in green failed to score yet again in their UEFA Nations League defeat to Finland in Helsinki last night. It has been a tough start for new manager Stephen Kenny and the lack of goals remains the biggest cause for concern.
Dr. Henry Jockins from the Institute of Scientific Research made the prediction and he explained the science behind his findings.
“Using the most sophisticated technology available we have been tracking both the search for a covid vaccine and an Irish goal and I can confidently predict that a vaccine will be with us by the end of this year and readily available around the middle of next year. A goal for the Republic of Ireland however is about 4 years off.”
The news will come as a blow to the long suffering Irish fans who have had little to cheer about lately but Dr. Jockins said they should look on the bright side.
Due to the vaccine of course the Aviva Stadium will once again be packed to capacity so at least they’ll be there to witness the goal and celebrate with the players. Unfortunately it will be scored during a 2-1 defeat to England.
