It would be unfair not to field our strongest team?
Surely it is in Trap''s interests as an Italian to field the weakest Ireland team?
I suppose many will assume Spain will easily beat Croatia?
Croatia (15/2) v (15/8) Spain (4/5)
So a draw is only about 2-1
Now take a look at Ireland's odds
Italy (3/10) v (5) Ireland (11)
We have had a few draws against Italy recently (2009) do that 5-1 seems a good price
but I guess people think our form has dropped significantly?
Can we pull a result out of the bag? Would be a nice way to finish beating Italy!!!
Remember ranking points are at stake so I think we need to go for the strongest side don't we? So yes a win is important to stop the slide in rankings.
We can try different players in friendlies.
