Ireland's preparations for tonight's crucial World Cup qualifier has suffered a huge blow after it emerged that Shane Long has been ruled out of the tie. "I don't know about revenge, but certainly the view among the players is that if Russian Federation was available to us and we could make it there, thoughts about Seamus would be very much in the forefront of our minds", he said.

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

With Scotland drawing 2-2 in Slovenia, Ireland will seal a play-off place with a victory over Chris Coleman's Welsh side. And within a few years Wales found themselves rocketing up the rankings, breaking into the FIFA Top 10, which led them to becoming top seed for the current qualifying campaign.

On Tuesday, we stressed that a narrow Sweden win over Luxembourg was the best we could hope for if we had any chance of overhauling Group A's runner-up on goal difference.

On top of that, they also lead Ireland in the goals scored stakes meaning a five goal swing is required this week if we're going to sneak into the playoff at the expense of our northern neighbours.

Following the completion of the transaction, the director now owns 36,111 shares of the company's stock, valued at $12,290,739.96. Bernstein set a $265.00 target price on Tesla and gave the company a neutral rating in a report on Wednesday, September 27th.

Ireland now knew they just needed to see the game out while Wales, who knew a draw might be enough soon found out it would not as results elsewhere went against them. It doesn't bother me if Wales are favourites because they have to win.

O'Neill added: "We've put ourselves in a position where we have to win the game and Wales probably the same".

It was the Celtic striker's fourth goal in his last five Scotland games and had the "Tartan Army" of travelling fans believing in the dream of reaching the finals, being held in Russian Federation next year, for the first time in two decades.

Robbie Brady and James McClean are expected to be recalled to the Irish team having missed Friday's win over Moldova due to suspension. Of course the connections are always going to be there. At other times the game was played with the ferocious pace of a derby encounter rather than a normal global. When we get off to a decent start (in qualifying), the mindset changes a little bit in terms of points.
