IT’S ALMOST TIME now as Ireland prepare for one final push which could take the country to its first World Cup in 16 years.

Denmark stands between Martin O’Neill’s side and a place on the plane to Russia in seven months’ time and to set the mood RTÉ  have produced yet another spine-tingling montage to set pulses racing in anticipation.

Brendan Gleeson stars as famous moments from those unforgettable nights reel in the background — Stuttgart, Giant’s Stadium, Genoa, Lille, Cardiff.

Ireland will be hoping to add Dublin to that collection as another ‘big scalp’, as George Hamilton might put it, is needed tonight.

One goal will take Ireland through, but a long night awaits. You can get yourself in the mood for the occasion by watching the video below.
