Shane Duffy confident as Ireland head into crunch World Cup qualifier tonight

Ireland start with James McClean as Wales put faith in Hal Robson-Kanu for Cardiff decider

Wales host the Republic of Ireland on Monday night knowing that they can not afford to lose if they want to wrap up a place in the World Cup play-offs.

A win would secure a least a play-off place for either side with just one point separating them going into the game, with even a draw enough for Chris Coleman's Wales.

The game against the Republic of Ireland will be played at Cardiff City Stadium and will see an influx of Irish fans arriving at Wales' National Airport.

"We're on unsafe ground if we go in with a game plan of trying to soak the pressure up for 90 minutes", said Coleman, who will be without his talisman Gareth Bale due to injury.

"But if we keep doing what we've been doing, that will give us a great chance of having a good night on Monday".

As Scotland failed to take all three points from their game against Slovenia on Sunday night, it sets up things nicely for Ireland as we face Wales in Cardiff tonight.

"I think we can win the match", O'Neill said ahead of the crunch fixture.

No. Serbia are guaranteed a top-two position and therefore one of Wales and Ireland will miss out.

Ramsey saw a late strike drift into the arms of Randolph as Wales failed to issue a response and Ireland celebrated getting their name into the hat for next Tuesday's play-off draw.

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.

Shane Long is out of tonight's game between Ireland and Wales in Cardiff. "We were all absolutely devastated at what happened".

Wales upped the tempo in pursuit of an equaliser thereafter, but Ireland were able to hold out to record another huge away win in this campaign, and with it, passage to the World Cup playoffs. I fought against that because they hadn't earned that tag, but they've earned that now.

The Irish are looking to qualify for the World Cup for a fourth time - and first since 2002.

A loss means Wales will finish third.

Wales have not lost at home in a competitive match since a 3-0 defeat by Serbia in September 2013, but O'Neill believes his side can pull off a result.

"A team without Gareth Bale is better for us", Duffy said.
