Donegal manager Jim McGuinness praised his triumphant squad today, saying they did all that was asked of them.

He was speaking to RTÉ just after the team’s 3-14 to 0-17 victory over Dublin in the All-Ireland semi-final at Croke Park.

McGuinness compared Donegal’s performance to their last semi-final outing against Dublin in 2011.

“The lesson was we only kicked six points and what we aimed to do today was to marry a very good defensive structure with a very good attacking one.

“It’s not about all-out attack or all-out defence. It’s about both, and today we got both of them right.”

The players could not have delivered more, he added.

“We came with a game plan and, in fairness to the lads, they executed it to the letter of the law.

“I’m just very proud of them as I have been for the last four years, regardless what the result would have been today.

“Everything that you ask of them, they give it to you.”
