Advancing into the Euro 2016 knock out stage after showing a spirited display against Italy seem to lift Republic Ireland’s confidence as they are set to meet with host nation and favorite, France.
Ireland’s head coach, Martin O’Neill ensured that his team won’t be short in confidence as the tactician believes they will go into the pitch this Sunday with the confidence they have when playing Azzurri.
Although admitting that his team will be up against it as aside from strong home court support, Les Blues do have many quality players who can trouble any teams.
Moreover, O’Neill stated that his team will try to go gun blazing on Sunday if possible, but the most important thing to simply keep themselves in the game.
Probable Republic of Ireland line up against France:
Randolph(gk); Coleman, O’Shea, Duffy, Brady(def); McClean, Whelan, McCarthy, Hendrick(mid); Murphy, Long(att)
