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

Hierro Denmark us 94 qualifying its a sign we are cert to go through lol

Big Hierro did a lot of looking at the Balls! Told not to look several times!

Denmark and away first, what a great draw.

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

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 .

Our better results in the Group came against Serbia, Wales and Austria, 7 points AFAIK. We got 2 points at home against the same 3!

On a side note, Wes Hoolihan rarely starts away from home. Go figure  :o

Probably the draw everyone was hoping for... Hopefully complacency doesn’t creep in though. Denmark’s 4-0 win over Poland stands out but looking at their results in their qualifying group they looked a bit inconsistent - losing to Montenegro at home and Poland away. That said they scored 10 goals in their last four qualifiers so still need to be wary. I’d take a 0-0 away and hope for the best at home..

Checking out their squad. They have a Thomas Delaney (Werder Bremen) playing for them. He must be Irish!

We still have a lot to do to qualify but our position is much improved from where we were when we lost against Serbia. I think we have a 50 50 chance of qualifying from here.

Along with Norway its one of the most pricey places i have visited. On the draw Denmark will be well use to Irelands style of play making it a very tricky tie to win.

No way :)

Arlene will declare the draw unconstitutional and seek to have it redrawn following a prolonged period of discussion.

Is Lord Bendtner still togging out for them?
