Ireland Gear Up For Vital World Cup Qualifier Meeting With Wales

Ireland Gear Up For Vital World Cup Qualifier Meeting With Wales”

Chris Coleman insisted Wales will embrace the pressure of today's knife-edge World Cup qualification shoot-out against the Republic of Ireland in Cardiff.

Ireland know that only a victory will be good enough, and after a confidence boosting win over Moldova in Dublin on Friday night, the Boys in Green could steal the headlines and take another step towards Russian Federation if they can come out on top in this one at 50/1 (51.0).

Young Callum O'Dowda got his first worldwide start on Friday, but O'Neil would be a very fearless man not to bring back in joint top scorer in qualifying McClean who has three goals to his name or the talented Brady.

Wales and the Republic of Ireland go head-to-head at the Cardiff City Stadium tonight.

Wales are now in second and a draw could see them overtake Serbia, should they lose by two - but no matter what the Welsh need to avoid defeat.

Poland booked their ticket for the finals as a 4-2 home win against Montenegro saw them finish top of Group E.

But a win for Croatia or Ukraine would scupper Wales.

England, already assured of their passage to Russian Federation 2018 as Group F winners, wrapped up their qualifying campaign with a 1-0 win in Lithuania thanks to Harry Kane's 26th-minute penalty for Linas Klimavicius' foul on Dele Alli. During this time, twice became stronger the national team of Ireland and three times a draw was fixed.

A loss means Ireland finish third. "We are too good to do that".

"We said we needed someone before the game as Gaz was out, someone to create something and score a goal and Tom showed his maturity to do that". We have to do that - it's our strength. "That's the way it's set up".

Wales and Ireland have shut each other out over their past two clashes.

"So even without the unfortunate incident in Dublin with (Neil Taylor) and Seamus, this was always going to be a game where there will be two teams locking horns". When we get off to a decent start (in qualifying), the mindset changes a little bit in terms of points.

"We look forward to these games because I've been in positions where I didn't know if I'd still be in a job if I'd lost that next game".

"So let's go for it".
