Denmark will stand up to Ireland physicality, says Kjaer

Single moment brilliance needed Ireland World Cup play-off

Single moment brilliance needed Ireland World Cup play-off

Denmark have been held to a 0-0 draw at the Telia Parken stadium tonight in the first leg of their 2018 World Cup playoff against the Republic of Ireland. These players have been able to do that in the last couple of years.

"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".

"The Euros was a great experience and we can draw on that, but we need to just go and perform tomorrow night and I believe fully that we'll be going to Russian Federation".

That'll be easier said than done.

That could see O'Neill's men playing nearly as cautiously as they did on Saturday night, and the manager admitted the prospect of a shootout has been considered.

He said: "It would be lovely to have a prolific goalscorer in the side that you can turn to. But if you don't have that you have to find other ways, and that's what we've had to do", he added.

"I think we matched them in that part of the game".

"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 gave me an opportunity to come to Sunderland.

"The Irish teams that I have played against have very good spirit", he said.

Age Hareide's side booked their place in the final round after finishing second - five points behind table-topping Poland - in Group E. Losses to the Poles and Montenegro in their first three outings ultimately proved costly for Denmark, who went undefeated in their final seven matches but could not make up the ground despite a thumping 4-0 triumph over the group winners in September.

However, O'Neill knows from experience that all the preparation in the world can not replicate that moment, illustrating his point by reference to the 1984 European Cup final in which Roma's Falcao and Toninho did not step up for a shoot-out against Liverpool. "A couple of great Brazilians, the best players in the world, downed tools and wouldn't take them".
