We respect Andorra - Tardelli

Marco Tardelli

Marco Tardelli has warned the Republic of Ireland they cannot afford take Andorra lightly as they attempt to set the pace in their Euro 2012 qualifying group.

The Republic welcome the unfancied minnows to Dublin on Tuesday evening for the first competitive game at the Aviva Stadium, the newly-refurbished Lansdowne Road.

The Andorrans suffered a 2-0 home defeat to Russia on Friday, and Tardelli said: "Normally, it is possible to win against Andorra, but you know football. Everything is possible on the pitch. I saw the DVD of the game against Russia and they played well. Andorra had two chances to score. Every match is difficult. We respect Andorra. We respect ever team, but normally it is possible to win."
