It might be anti-football but it’s effective anti-football. The Republic of Ireland specialise in not losing football matches and they came away from Denmark with a goalless draw which means a sketchy 1-0 win on Tuesday night will seal a World Cup place.

Strangely, the bookies are prepared to go as big as 6/4 about a Republic win although that price is available with Paddy Power who have a vested interest in Ireland going through even if that ends up costing them money.

Martin O’Neill is an expert in these situations and there were risks taken against a Denmark team who probed away on Saturday without fashioning too many chances. Christian Eriksen was kept quiet and it all hinges on Tuesday’s game.

The Danes had better be up for a scrap. There’s such a strong sense of togetherness within the Irish camp and that could end up swinging things their way at the Aviva Stadium.

There’s definitely the prospect of no goals being scored again, with Ireland happy to play a policy of containment, with David Meyler back in the team after suspension, while Conor Hourihane will hope to get a starting berth.

Denmark over-relied on Eriksen during World Cup qualifying and it’s clear that the Tottenham player will be targeted in this match, with a distinct lack of firepower not aiding their cause.

We think that if Ireland get their noses in front, it will be a case of shutting up shop and ensuring that they are among the thirty-two teams who attend the 2018 World Cup.
