KERRY FLEXED THEIR muscles at Croke Park this afternoon to romp into the All-Ireland semi-finals with an emphatic win over Kildare.

The Kingdom cruised to a 27 point victory as they dominated from start to finish, eventually racking up seven goals.

Darran O’Sullivan came off the bench to score two goals while Colm Cooper provided yet more evidence that he’s one of the greatest with a consummate display to score 2-3 of his own.

‘The Gooch’ earned plenty of plaudits for his performance but it wasn’t enough to win over The Sunday Game panel as they handed the man-of-the-match award to David Moran.

Dessie Dolan commended the Kerins O’Rahilly’s man’s work-rate throughout the 7-16 to 0-10 demolition of the Lilywhites.

Stephen O’Brien, who scored 1-4, was the other nominee.

Do you agree with the panel’s selections? Let us know in the comments section.
