Hunt targets respectability
Republic of Ireland,
Stephen Hunt has played down Republic of Ireland's chances at Euro 2012, saying they "don't want to embarrass" themselves.
Ireland have their work cut out in Group C, with Sunday's opener against Croatia followed by a clash with holders Spain and a match against Italy. "On their day, if Spain perform, they could beat you 4-0 or 5-0. And, on their day, Croatia could give us a football lesson, while Italy can beat us too," said Hunt. "It's all about who can peak at the right time when the tournament gets under way. We don't want to embarrass ourselves."
