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

Wales, Ireland in winner-takes-all duel

Surprise semi-finalists at Euro 2016, Wales have not played at a World Cup since 1958 and could finish a qualifying campaign unbeaten for the first time in history.

Victory for either team should allow them to claim one of the eight European play-off berths at their opponents' expense, and could even yield an automatic qualifying spot if Group D leaders Serbia falter in their last game at home to Georgia.

Needing victory to ensure top spot in European qualifying Group I, goals from Gylfi Sigurdsson and Johann Gudmundsson ensured Iceland would be on the plane to Russian Federation 2018.

It should be a tense night for all involved tonight.

Croatia and Iceland can seal the top two places in Group I if they both win their games and Ukraine fail to beat bottom of the table Kosovo on Friday.

"We said that we wanted to go out and try for a good start to put them away early". A win can also mean top spot should Serbia draw with (combined with an emphatic Ireland win) or lose to Georgia. "We'll get in tomorrow morning, prepare for Wales and give it a hell of a go".

The big talking point from the Wales camp is that they are missing their world-class superstar Gareth Bale.

After the ninth round of games, only three groups outside of our own remain of interest to us.

"Players like Shane Duffy came in and had a big game that night".

McClean missed the 2-0 win at home to Moldova last Friday through suspension, but was returned to the side along with Robbie Brady and Harry Arter as O'Neill opted to leave Wes Hoolahan on the bench.

If both Wales and Croatia draw, then the two will be level on points and goal difference, with number of goals scored deciding which of them progresses. You can look back and say, "We've never done this or never done that".

Worse still, they could miss out due to their disciplinary record - seven months after Neil Taylor's red card for a controversial tackle on Ireland's Seamus Coleman.

"Whatever game-plan we have, we have to utilise it as best we can".

"They had a couple of long-distance shots, but I felt we were comfortable and we dealt with everything".
