Wales 0-0 Republic of Ireland

Wales star Chris Gunter urges the fans to give them one last big push

For Wales, a draw at Cardiff City Stadium would be enough to finish above Ireland in the table, but Coleman says his players will be thinking of only victory.

Speaking ahead of the game O'Neill said "I genuinely feel, if you look over the last three years of competitive football, in big, big matches we have taken a lot of risks". That's the way it's set up.

"I think our approach will be quite similar to the one we had against Italy in Lille", Martin O'Neill said in a press conference in Cardiff yesterday.

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

But a win for Croatia or Ukraine would scupper Wales.

Those shrewd Eurovision fanatics nodded their heads wearily, knowing that Cyprus were probably unlikely to step on Greek toes, particularly when nothing much was at stake for them.

"Whatever game-plan we have, we have to utilise it as best we can. We were all absolutely devastated at what happened".

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.

In Bale's absence, Derby County forward Tom Lawrence scored a fine first global goal to give Wales a 1-0 win away to Georgia on Friday.

And a win on Monday could take them to their first World Cup since 1958.

"They were labelled this "golden" bunch of players before we qualified [for Euro 2016] and I fought against that, because they had not earned that tag".

With Robbie Brady and James McClean back from suspension, both players were restored to the team. Wales could finish as runners-up yet still miss out on the play-offs by virtue of being the worst second-placed team.

Of course, if Ireland lose or draw in Cardiff, then they will also be freed of the necessity of playing in a playoff, regardless of what occurs elsewhere. He will be hoping Wales can win and other results go the right way to secure his first appearance at the World Cup finals.

It follows on from 2,000 travelling fans belting out the tune prior to the 1-0 over win over Georgia on Friday despite attempts from the hosts to quash the away support and their singing.
