"Don't let the terrorists have their way.In my experience, sport can be a wonderfully positive influence in the face of adversity and in the face of terrorism.We have seen that in South Africa.I saw first hand in Ireland," said he addressing the mediapersons."I have every confidence that we cannot yield in any way to terrorists' intentions.I would ask the public to be vigilant and the old adage, if they see something, to say something.But come to our matches," added Flanagan.(UNI)
