Ireland Name Starting Lineup For Wales Clash, Brady And McClean Return

2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifier, Aviva Stadium, Dublin 6/10/2017 Republic of Ireland vs Moldova Ireland team

Returning duo James McClean and Robbie Brady, as expected, go straight back into Martin O’Neill’s starting lineup for Monday night’s all-or-nothing clash against Wales in Cardiff. With space needed to be created for the pair and Shane Long ruled out through injury, O’Neill was always going to shuffle the deck and make the starting eleven look that bit different from …

How Ireland Should Now Line Up Against Wales After Moldova Win

2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifier, Aviva Stadium, Dublin 6/10/2017 Republic of Ireland vs Moldova Ireland team

Ireland did the necessary against Moldova on Friday night to set up a winner-takes-all clash with Wales on Monday. Two first half goals from Daryl Murphy were enough to seal the win, though the performance at times wasn’t particularly strong and some players should be pretty nervous about their role in the starting lineup. Still, Ireland got the win they …

Robbie Brady just reminded everyone how dangerous he is over a dead ball… On Tuesday evening, Burnley took on Leeds United in the EFL Cup and all sorts of drama unfolded in the final minutes of ordinary time.

Ireland’s hopes of qualifying for the World Cup next year hang by a thread after a disappointing 1-0 defeat to Serbia at the Aviva Stadium. It was a much-improved performance from Saturday’s shambolic performance in Tbilisi as the Boys in Green, buoyed by the presence of Wes Hoolahan and David Meyler in midfield, looked a lot more comfortable in possession, …

Ireland enter into Tuesday night’s World Cup qualifier against Serbia knowing that, really, only a win will do in their quest to finish top of Group D. Saturday’s 1-1 draw in Georgia has increased the pressure on Martin O’Neill and the Boys in Green to deliver at the Aviva, knowing that defeat will put that top spot almost certainly beyond …

Assessing Four Possible Ireland XIs That Could Tame Georgia in Tbilisi

With Ireland’s crunch tie with Georgia fast approaching, we look at four possible lineups Martin O’Neill could deploy in Tbilisi. O’Neill seems to favour certain personnel but not a particular system. He has alternated between 4-4-2, 4-3-3, 4-2-3-1, a midfield diamond and, more recently, a 4-5-1 formation. Ireland beat Georgia 1-0 last October with a 4-3-3 formation deployed, Seamus Coleman …
