*Peter Walsh is the winner of Behind The Lines. His guess of 6-1 was the closest to the correct scoreline.*

IF YOU HAVEN’T been listening to Put ‘em Under Pressure on repeat all day, you’re doing it wrong.

Tonight, one day shy of the 15th anniversary of qualifying for the 2002 World Cup, Ireland take on Denmark with a ticket to Russia 2018 on the line.

In the latest episode of eir Sport Close Calls — live on Facebook after 3pm — Gavan Casey and Paul Dollery were joined by Ben Blake in the shadow of the Aviva Stadium to discuss tonight’s big game, what the Danes have to offer and, of course, how they think Ireland will fare.

And we want to hear how you think we’ll get on.

Give us a score prediction in the comments section below and all correct answers will be entered into a draw to win our brand new book, Behind The Lines.
