FIFA World Cup – qualifiers
start: 20:45 (GMT+2)
to initial schedule of the current qualification campaign the last 10
round in Cardiff will be held among Wales and Ireland. And according
to the most incredible tournament position two national teams from
the British Isles had reached the new match with the status of two
challengers for the final second place in group D.
now, one of two honorable will have to fall out of the race.
(the head coach Chris Coleman)
Dragons have two important factors that speak in favor of them during
the forthcoming battle in Cardiff. Firstly, Wales will play at its
home arena Cardiff City and secondly, the team of Chris Coleman is
ahead of its nearest opponent with 1 point (17 against 16). And this
means that during the last match of the qualification stage the hosts
will be pleased even with the goalless draw.
(the head coach Martin O’Neill)
last home match of the 9th
round against Moldova the hosts of Aviva
Stadium had opened the score on the 2nd
minute after an accurate kick of Daryl Murphy (1:0). And in 17
minutes the center forward from Nottingham Forest has scored his
second goal (2:0).
further the team of Martin O’Neill had chances to increase its
advantage. But finally Ireland was left with two goals that were
scored at the very beginning of the game. And now the green and
whites need only the victory over Wales in order to get into the
with their two obvious pluses the hosts of Cardiff City have reached
the forthcoming game with one but very important minus. The Dragons
are lacking their injured leader – the forward of Real Madrid
is obvious that the absence of Gareth has really balanced the chances
of teams for final triumph. And though bookmakers have called hosts
to be the favorites of this match we think that it would be wiser to
bet on the double success in favor of guests. The team of Chris
Coleman will be pleased with the outcome X 2.
