Sensational James McClean Goal Gives Ireland The Lead Vs Wales

10 Octubre 2017, 02:42 | Cornelio Vivanco

Republic of Ireland ended Wales' hopes of securing a play-off spot to ensure their own qualifying campaign continued thanks to a second-half strike from James McClean.

Defending champions Germany, with first place in Group C already assured, pounded Azerbaijan 5-1 on Sunday to finish the qualifiers with 30 of 30 possible points, having allowed only four goals.

"We are in the play-offs".

If you're in the United States, the game is on both of Fox's streaming platforms. The venue of the match is at Cardiff City Stadium, Cardiff.

And boss Chris Coleman has challenged Wales" "Golden Generation' to make more history in their pursuit of glory.

Before Wales' unprecedented success at Euro 2016 - reaching a semi-final at a major tournament for the first time - the history of Welsh football read like a catalogue of anguish and near misses.

"The players have proven this is a golden era", Coleman said at his press conference ahead of the Cardiff clash. They are a golden era.

"But they have earned it now".

He said: "Right now all I can think about, picture in my mind, is the faces of the players in the dressing room and the disappointment. When the dust settles, we'll see where we're going".

"It was hard because they didn't really threaten that much but they kept the ball in the second half without really doing anything and for us it was just a concentration thing to not give them a silly chance", he continued.

Italy battled to a 1-0 win over Albania with a late Antonio Candreva goal as the struggling Group G runners-up head for the playoffs in a bid to reach next year's World Cup. There's no doubt they will travel in their thousands and as I say, it's going to be like a cup final, we need to go there and win and we will be looking to do that.

"But it's not these players, they weren't involved in that". Absolutely. Every single one of them. Ramsey dropped back and Ireland held onto possession better than at any time in the half. "They have shown great courage". Without Bale, Wales under Coleman have now won just 15 per cent of their matches.

Minutes later, a goal for Croatia in Ukraine made matters even worse for Coleman's men as it meant they would crash out even if they could snatch a draw from Irish hands.

Former Leicester, Aston Villa and Celtic manager O'Neill, meanwhile, revelled in his side upsetting the odds and emerging from a group which he considered one of the most perilous. We look forward to these games because I've been in positions where I didn't know if I'd still be in a job if I'd lost that next game.

"But there's nothing to fear and worry about the occasion".
