McGeady looking for Russian secrets
Aidan McGeady has been looking to get some inside information on the Russians by asking his new teammates at Spartak Moscow. McGeady is hoping that his insider knowledge could help the Republic in their next fixture at home to the Russians.
McGeady has been doing everything he can to get some information off his room-mate, Sergei Parshivlyuk. The Russian full back told Championat, “Aiden questioned me about who plays in my position for the national side but I refused to give away our secrets.” The Republic of Ireland host the Russians on the 8th October. The Russians have had a patchy start to the Euro 2012 qualifying campaign, losing their last fixture to Slovakia. This was a very rare home defeat for the Russians.
McGeady also took time out of Spartak’s training for their upcoming Champions league match to discuss his first goal for the Muscovites last Friday.
“I’m happy to score my first goal but am obviously upset we didn’t win,” said McGeady.
“It was funny to score with my belly, I have never scored like that before. I am hungry for more after a long break from football at the start of the season and hope to reach the top of my game soon.”
McGeady will notice one familiar face in tonight’s Champions league fixture. The Swedish ref who famously missed THAT handball will be officiating tonight Spartak Moscow versus MSK Zilina fixture. This is one of Martin Hansson’s most high profile games since his massive blunder in the Stade de France ruined the dreams of Irish fans.
