WE’RE DOWN TO the business end of Euro 2016 qualification, and, believe it or not, Ireland are still in with a shout.

As it currently stands, the Boys in Green occupy the third place play-off spot behind Germany and Poland after the Scots failed to pick up a single point in the last international window.

Group D

At 3.30pm this afternoon, Martin O’Neill names his squad for the final two group games at the FAI’s headquarters in Abbottstown.

Ireland will be hoping they can avoid a repeat of the last time Germany came to Dublin (a 6-1 drubbing in 2012) when the world champions visit the Aviva Stadium on 8 October.

When the team travels to Warsaw to play Poland three days later, they will have a far better idea of how the group is likely to pan out as Scotland will have played the Poles, leaving them with what should be a routine three points against Gibraltar.

So tell us, do you think Ireland will be one of the 24 nations at next summer’s European Championships in France? 

Poll Results:

Yes, after finishing third and winning the play-off (2974)
No, they'll lose out in the play-offs (2878)
No, I can't see them making the top three (1865)
Yes, they'll progress as one of the top two (447)
