O'Neill urges Ireland players to think of crocked Everton star Coleman

O'Neill urges Ireland players to think of crocked Everton star Coleman

"We welcome the pressure". But all of the strikers behind him on the depth chart have six or fewer caps, and none have scored an global goal.

James McClean's right-footed strike just short of the hour mark was enough to send Ireland one step closer to their first World Cup since 2002. Jeff Hendrick robbed Ashley Williams, who failed to clear after receiving an under-arm pass from his goalkeeper, before racing down the touchline and crossing for McClean to shoot first-time into the net. The goal changed the dynamics of the game.

"He's just been magnificent", O'Neill said. "He's been a talisman".

"A point may be OK, but we'll go for three points".

It's a huge night for the Wales national team tonight and they will need the home fans at the Cardiff City Stadium to be as rabid as ever.

Jonny Evans believes European football's heavyweight nations have reason to fear drawing Northern Ireland in the World Cup play-offs.

"I think our approach will be quite similar to the one we had against Italy in Lille", Martin O'Neill said in a press conference in Cardiff yesterday.

But she claims on the show that the public scrutiny isn't the real reason for her change of heart over public attention. The mother-of-two has previously spoken about her anxiety, which worsened after she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris.

"They hit us the counter-attack, a sucker punch, so hats off to them". If either Croatia or Ukraine win and Wales draw then Wales will be the worst second-placed team.

'It's as big as anything we've been involved in but the good thing is we've been here before.

"I think there's a fine balance between underestimating and being fearful".

O'Neill confirmed that Jon Walters will miss out on the playoff but he wasn't quite ruling out the return of his captain Seamus Coleman. Coleman was gracious in defeat afterwards saying he hoped Ireland would qualify now.

The manager agreed a contract extension earlier this month which will keep him in charge of the Republic for the Euro 2020 campaign. But we went there and showed our character, we showed our quality as well. The FAW has been great with me - I asked them to leave me alone as my contract has been running down and all the questions were getting asked. It's been a privilege to work with these players.

"I think you have to give a lot of credit to Harry Arter.whether he meant that dummy or not, only he knows", he told RTÉ Sport.
