Here's the updated attendance stats for O'Neill and Keane's first match. I asked would we see an increase in attendance here last week before the Latvia tie due to the duo's appointment.
37,100 turned up to the Aviva for last Friday's match, reaching 71% capacity for the stadium. The attendance exceeded the average at the Aviva for friendly matches by 11% and translates to, on average, O'Neill and Keane attracting 5,901 extra people.
Although the pricing structure may have been different, more people attended Trapatoni's first game at Croke Park (42,500) but this game against Serbia had a lower capacity attendance - 52% compared to the O'Neill-Keane 71%.
Good news for O'Neill and Keane, but when you see 46,000 attending the Aviva on Saturday night to see Ireland take on Australia in Rugby Union it perhaps make you question the quality of our international football.
