For Coleman, however, the tempestuous nature of that match seven months ago belongs to the past. For the upcoming match, Moldova suited an outsider, taking the last place in the group with 2 points and goal difference 4:20.
O'Neill says that if Ireland do go on to qualify for the final stages in 2018, it would provide Coleman with an added incentive to return to full fitness as soon as possible. If they [the Irish press] want to ask those type of questions that's up to them.
"It's not that far back in the memory that players shouldn't consider it when we're approaching this game".
"Now talking about Wales, we go and apply ourselves, really play very strongly and resolutely, and I think we can win the match". There is simply no excuse now for leaving Meyler out of this team, he has earned his place on merit and should start at the base of a midfield three against Wales.
If there's any doubt about him starting the game all you need to do is watch a replay of Daryl Murphy's second goal. "There will be chances at either end and there won't be much in it". "I wasn't sure I would get used to global football, but qualification for the Euros made it all worthwhile", he said.
"The most important thing is to win the game but we have 90 minutes to get a goal", said O'Neill when he spoke to the media on the eve of the game in the Cardiff City Stadium. That's down to the players' mentality as well.
"They (the FAI) said they would like to extend my contract with the Euros coming up and I've agreed to do so", said the 65-year-old. "This is their time and they are doing a great job". Wales' record without Bale makes for dismal reading: no win in the last 10 games he has missed (eight defeats and two draws) and no competitive victory without him since October 2013.
"Gareth will be there". That didn't look too likely given how poor the Georgians were against Wales on Friday, but then that was also down to how good Coleman's side were. "I never demanded them to come".
Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia: 'We just got our ass kicked twice'
