Ireland have started out extremely well in this years qualification round with winning both of their opening matches agianst two of the minnows in the group, Armenia and ANdora. Now as they host the Russian side, Ireland have a huge oppertunity of getting their grip firm on this group. If they can win this match they will be in a very good position to make it to the Euro’s 2012 in two years time. Robbies Keane the Irish Captain is not playing well for the club team Spurs at the moment but for Ireland he still is a player ot watch out for.
On the other hand, Russia are playing on the edge at the moment, they are coming into this match on the back of a defeat when Slovakia defeated them 1-0 in the previous game and they will be looking to bounce back ad get on the winning run or their hopes for the qualification will be dashed. Arsenal striker Arshavin is the player to watch for the Russians as he is their main player and Ireland will be looking to cope with hime well.
