New Republic of Ireland deal for manager Martin O'Neill

New Republic of Ireland deal for manager Martin O'Neill

Not only has O'Neill been able to inspire his players to rise to those occasions, he has made some big and slightly surprising decisions for them, and been vindicated.

"Whatever game plan we have, we have to execute it well and we have to be patient, but not too patient".

He said: "Regardless of their result in Georgia today, we have to go and win the match".

"We have to do that - it's our strength". Obviously, I played in a different role; central midfield with the option to go wide but what's more important is that we got the 3 points.

He said: "I think there's a willingness on both sides [to stay on]".

Celtic cousins separated by the Irish Sea, Wales and Ireland are more accustomed to facing off on the rugby pitch and have never previously tackled each other in a football match of such significance.

Daryl Murphy. Shane Long has scored one goal in his last 42 games for club and country.

It is an opportunity that Wales manager Coleman does not intend to spurn as players who have always been labelled the "Golden Generation" attempt to follow reaching the semi-finals of Euro 2016 by securing the nation's first appearance at a World Cup for 60 years.

O'Neill has been in his job since November 2013 and guided Ireland to the Euro 2016 finals last summer, in the process earning a contract extension.

Martin Skrtel's late own goal in Hampden was disastrous for the Slovakians, meaning they fell out of second place and, for our purposes, are now unable to rise above 12 points in the runners-up table. The 17-year-old scored the victor within five minutes of coming on as a second-half substitute against Austria before being sent on again to set up the opening goal in a 2-0 win in Moldova three days later.

"It's definitely up there (as his best Irish performance)".

It's expected to be the same at the Cardiff City Stadium, and Coleman knows it.

However victory for either side would see them top the group if Serbia lost their final game.

Berg Gudmundsson and Birkir Bjarnason gave Iceland a two-goal cushion heading into half-time and things got even better for Heimir Hallgrimsson's team four minutes into the second half when Kari Arnason extended the lead. "You have two sets of committed players, lots of contact I would imagine, our players know that".

"We created some chances and finally took one with five minutes to go in an epic game".

"He is making a good recovery now, but I think that when he's ready, he will get back to the form he showed both for club and country, and it would be nice if by the time he is back that he has got something to cheer on the global level".
