    Yeah, it's not that risky at all tbf.
    Coleman, Doherty, Manning, Stevens have all deputised at CB either at club or int level in the last two years. If we end up without 3 cbs on the pitch, it won't be a risk, it will have been because some crapped all over a headstone somewehre, or something equally misfortunate.

    Azerbaijan down to ten men since the 21st minute at home to Luxembourg. Still 0-0, but Luxembourg doing all the pressing and you'd imagine will probably win. A draw and we'd "just" need to win in Luxembourg on Sunday to rescue third in the group

    i checked the wikipedia of irish nat team Matt Doherty is listed there to wear the legendary number 10 shirt . is that accurate?

    Roy Keane would faint if that is true, not to tell you Francis Stapleton and Robbie Keane

    Only if we get a result tonight. If Lux win and we lose they'll be 4 points ahead going into the final game.

    That's what I meant - a draw in Azerbaijan and we'd just need to win on Sunday even if we lose tonight

    Ah yes, misread. You'd imagine playing v 10 they'll get the win eventually.

    Can be tougher at times playing against ten men and Azerbaijan has made it hard for better teams to get the win at times. Hopefully they grind out a result.

    1-0 Luxembourg.

    Nothing unusual in that team I guess. Idah hasn't really done much do far and it's not surprising to see him changed out, albeit that Portugal away was probably his best game for us.

    Otherwise it looks like it could be a long night, but we thought that the last time too and we have a forward who knows where the goal is this time.

    Edit - 2-0 Luxembourg now

    Patricio, Semedo, Pepe, Danilo, Dalot; Nunes, Palhinha, Fernandes; Ronaldo, Andre Silva, Guedes

    Portugal with a makeshift backline. Ogbene on the right against Dalot at LB could be interesting.

    Didn't realise the Portuguese had 6 on yellow cards. Look weak at the back.

    Ogbene looked good in training back in September and mentioned who he come in possibly, he's taken his chances as have the others that have come in. Idah , parrot and Connolly have not and Kenny has got that badly wrong. His selections and teams prove that now.

    Matty Doherty is gonna wear the legendary #10 shirt. Roy Keane who has critized Doherty's skills and drills will get a stroke
