Peter Schmeichel: The Republic of Ireland are "so bad"

Denmark legend Peter Schmeichel doesn't expect the Republic of Ireland to qualify automatically for Euro 2020.

Mick McCarthy's side know a win in either of their remaining two qualifiers against Switzerland or Denmark would be enough to secure a top two finish in Group D.

However, Saturday's 0-0 draw away to Georgia would suggest a win against the Swiss or the Danes will be anything but straight forward.

Schmeichel was at the Parken Stadium in Copenhagen on Saturday to watch his son Kasper as the Danes beat Switzerland 1-0.

The former Manchester United goalkeeper had some encouraging words for Swiss keeper Yann Sommer after the match.

The Dane said “Switzerland will win against Ireland.”

“I have seen Ireland play and they are so bad. Switzerland can take a lot of positives from their performance in Copenhagen.

“They have some really talented players. If they play like that against Ireland, the win will come. "
