anyone who wants Italy is crazy. with the dutch not qualifying for the World Cup, FIFA will not want another big european football nation to not qualify. should the Italians need any help in getting through the playoffs - they'll get it.

Physically the Danes will match us and our 1 dimensional play wont work against them. The Swiss were 2nd in a brutal group, they will be flaky too. Ideal for us. Italy are a knock out team, getting them would be a disaster and Croatia have a lot of top quality players.

Swiss, Danes, Croatia, Italy in that order for me.

We'll take that.

We'll have the Lads serenading Russian nuns and fixing flat tyres on Cearnóg Dearg in Moscow in 2018 for sure!

Yeah, thought that first about playing at away first, but we got most of our points away from home Qualifying!

0-0 borefest in Copenhagen followed by a scrappy 1-0 win in Dublin with a deflected goal after 60 mins and then hang on for last half hour having played terribly in both games

Worked out nicely for both Irish teams. Big Hierro played a blinder.

The getting most of our points away from home stat is misleading ;   Austria were a bit of a shambles the night in Vienna and the Wales result was sans Bale in a slug fest .

Denmark will be favourites here .
