My nerves can't take this!

'What’s going on?’

‘It’s still nil-all.’

‘My nerves can’t take this!’

‘It’s worse if you’re actually watching it.  Come-on!  Go-on, go-on.  YES!  You fuckin’ beauty!’

The door burst open. ‘We’ve scored?’

‘Robbie Brady!  A header.  A beauty.  I told you we’d do it!’

‘You said, we’d need a bucket load of luck and the Italians to be useless.’

‘But I still believed!  Remember 1994, I said.  We did it then!’

‘How long left?’

‘Six minutes.  Plus extra-time.’  

‘I feel sick.’

‘All we have to do is not concede!  Who’d have believed it?  Where’re you going?’

‘I can’t watch.  I can’t.’
