Only two out of three outcomes covered. You're amazing. :)

Fantastic pitch, ground, atmosphere, two great teams, great match what Super 8's is meant to be. Best game of the year so far.

What a player young Galen looks at 19, stealing all the headlines from other more hyped young players.

Serious performance in Croke Park for a 19 year old.

Yeah Donegal needed to win to avoid Dublin. There is no guarantee against Mayo and they won't be able to better Kerry's win vs Meath.

It shows how stupid the system is to allow just a one week preparation for a Semi Final, it used to be 3 weeks or a month! Ridiculous and thankless

Very tasty game of football. Top quality from both sides, very entertaining. These two teams must be Dublins greatest threat and I still cant believe Donegal are not yet through and have to go to Mayo and get a result. Thought the match commentator was a bit of a tool for saying both teams want to win the group to avoid Dublin in the semis. Has Dublin already won the group, did Tyrone give them a by? Anyway it was a fantastic game and credit to both sides.

Replying To achara:  "Are commentators for real calling a square ball for the disallowed goal?"
From the Hogan looked like he was legit in the square but barely touched it then looked a bit like he threw it in. Maybe could have let it drop then fist it in. But I was miles away and my eyesight ain't great!

Wouldn't agree. All to play for for them, at home in Mayo

And its very plausible that Tyrone will beat Dublin in Omagh so nothing is decided as yet.

I reckon that game is going to bring both counties on no end. Donegal will face a resurgent Mayo in Castlebar. No way will they be undercooked if they get to the semi-finals. If Mayo win, they arrive well battle hardened into the semis and we all know that the longer Mayo stay in a Championship the more dangerous they become. Dublin, on the other hand, have had no real challenge, now play a dead rubber up in Omagh. These Super 8s seem to suit some teams more than others.

Really looking forward to mayo v donegal in McHale park in 2 weeks might even go down to it ,mayo have looked leggy last few games the 2 week rest before this crunch clash is timely for them to get Higgins and Durkan back in the starting team and I'm hearing Ruane will be available aswell and O'Shea Keegan carrying injuries it's a nice rest for them ,both teams will be up for this big time and except both teams to go at it in a fiery encounter ,Ill tip donegal to win a close encounter but with mayo u just never know coz at home they won't give up that semi final spot lightly

Yeah, thought that was massively disrespectful to Tyrone and embarrassing, like going away to Omagh will be anything but an absolute battle.

Very poor by RTÉ.

I don't mind us having a two week break now to get some of the wounded back.

Two games in two weeks is not the end of the world.

No but for a Semi Final you would have to agree that 1 week turnaround poorly planned

Agree ,there should be weekend off after the final qualifier round ,the super 8s should be played 3 weekends in a row and then should be two weeks off before the semis
