"I think with the players that they possess, I believe that they are capable of scoring a goal, so it means we might have to score two to win the match".

"I believe in the manager, I believe in the players, I believe in all the backroom staff". We don't concede many goals and hopefully we don't concede on Tuesday but we can be a bit better on the ball and we will create a lot more.

What TV channel is Ireland vs Denmark on?

Having drawn 0-0 with the Danes in last night's play-off first leg, the tie is evenly balanced ahead of the second game in Dublin on Tuesday evening, when a place at next summer's tournament in Russian Federation will be at stake.

What would have happened if we had committed a few more men forward and played with a little more ambition? I've been in this job for three years competitively speaking and we have played a lot of games, 24 in qualifying, a lot of teams, and I think there is a general pattern to all sides.

Christian Eriksen, on a long scoring streak for his country, looked his country's biggest threat, but by the end of the night he was hoofing it along with the rest of his team, as they sank to their opponents' level.

PH thanks Trump for offering to mediate maritime row
An worldwide tribunal has also ruled against China's maritime claims but Beijing has refused to recognize the court's ruling. Countries in the region were willing and able to appropriately handle the South China Sea issue, Geng added.

Harry Arter also put in a tireless display in the heart of the midfield and now Martin and his assistant Roy Keane will have to sit down and consider what they need to change for the home leg of this evenly balanced tie. We're at home, we've got to go for it.

Denmark are one game away from reaching next summer's World Cup finals.

"They will come more out, which allows us to get more space".

We may have missed an opportunity to get even more out of the away leg, but let's believe that we will all be celebrating when it matters most.

"We'll try and be a bit more expansive if we can but we've got to find a way to win a match". He said: "Ireland didn't really surprise us".
