Póg Mo Goal teamed up with Irish graphic designers to deliver a series of match-day posters for the Republic of Ireland’s qualification campaign for the 2016 European Championship in France. I was approached to create the third poster in the series. My contribution commemorates the mammoth task which faced the Boys in Green when Ireland played World Champions Germany in Stadion Gelsenkirchen on Tuesday 14 October. I drew inspiration from the 1990s green German away kit and used a German proverb "Wer nicht wagt, der nicht gewinnt." to highlight the spirit of both countries.
