The former Mayo footballer Andy Moran was speaking as an ambassador for Ireland Active’s sixth annual National Fitness Day and believes the All-Ireland final between Tyrone and Mayo is a 50/50 game that could go either way.

“If you say who’s going to win this final with any certainty I think you’re half bluffing. But my gut says Mayo. It’s so even all through the teams but I think the one place where we hold an advantage is in the middle of the field,” Moran said.
“Mainly because Tyrone have gone for two big guys [until now] and I wouldn’t be surprised if one of them were changed. We play with two half forwards in along there and I think we can get scores out of there.
“I think that gives us a huge opportunity and I do believe that for some reason, and I know I’m turning into a complete Mayo fan now, I do believe it’s our time.
“The opportunity for both teams here is absolutely massive in terms of Mayo and Tyrone in an All-Ireland final without facing the might of the Dubs on six-in-a-row or without facing Kerry in a final.”
“I would say that this is the most 50:50 game of football I think I’ve ever witnessed. Maybe I’m a bit too close to it because of my Mayo connections but it’s so 50:50 that you can’t call a winner in it really, but my gut is telling me Mayo,”
