Trapattoni expresses support to players

Republic of Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni revealed he is keen to support his players after Alaba’s last-minute goal, which stripped the Irish of the deserved victory.

Republic of Ireland were on course for a crucial three points thanks to brace from Walters, however Alaba scored an equalizer in injury time.
Trapattoni admitted there is nothing more frustrating than watching the victory slipping through your hands in the dying stages of the game. He said: “Think how disappointed the players are. We must give them morale and belief and support. We must be positive. We have three or four young players and some players who were playing only their second or third game.

“We must believe. I said yesterday we believe in this new revolution. We have to allow these young players to grow in confidence - why not? With more experience, we could have wasted some time with 90 minutes gone, but the draw is right because Austria played well,” he added.
