Very true, but did Ireland ever have it :-D

Is there another round after or is it straight qualification for the 4 winners?

Its home and away game for each tie and the winner goes straight into World Cup

lol, they had it in 94 when they beat the mighty italy at the world cup, and beat them well too, should have been 2-0 only john sheridan hit the bar. Where were england, scotland and wales then? Hmm, didn't qualify:whistling:

well the way fifa panicked when it looked as if france and ronaldo would be struggling to get there I wouldn't rule out another round or replay if they get beat.

France have the worst manager in world football! Ireland have a decent chance here

to be honest i've not seen much of france at all this year or last. Are they that bad?

for all their forward talents they seem to be struggling to score goals, they are probably still favourites for this tie, but not by much

There seems to be a lot of in fighting between the players and the manager

Tough draw for us tbh.

Obviously I would have loved for Ireland to have drawn Greece, but from the other 3 remaining "seeded" teams I would have chosen France ahead of Portugal or Russia. The French have been struggling for form recently under Domenech, so heres hoping that they don't all pull together for one last final push to South Africa.
