world champions in croke park

Ireland face Italy in Croke Park this evening in a world cup 2010 qualifier which i’ll be going to. Italy are current world cup champions and are undefeated in the group so far, like us.

A draw for them will be good enough to top the group and automatically qualify for the world cup next year in South Africa. It wouldn’t be a bad result for us either. This will be the biggest match Ireland have played in a long time, and certainly the biggest played at Croke Park.

Win, and we’re insured of at least a play off place which everyone would have taken before the group started. It’s not quite a must win game, but Ireland always play better going in as under dogs and up against big glamour sides…

Here’s what happened when we played them earlier in the group stages…
