Ireland will need to score twice for World Cup spot, predicts Martin O'Neill

Martin O'Neill reckons his side will have to score two goals in Dublin to secure their spot at the World Cup finals.

The Republic of Ireland earned a 0-0 draw in Copenhagen on Saturday night and know a win of any kind on Tuesday will be enough to get a ticket for Russia.

But if Denmark find the net at the Aviva Stadium, a draw would see the visitors go through on away goals.

"I think it is all to play for now," O'Neill told Sky Sports. "We have to win the game and I think we might have to score a couple of goals in the match because I think Denmark are capable of scoring."

O'Neill was happy with his side's performance in Denmark as they set about, and succeeded in, frustrating their hosts.

O'Neill said; "I think that they had one really great chance after Darren (Randolph - goalkeeper) had parried the shot from Eriksen. Darren has been playing particularly well for us. Overall I think we restricted them. We need to be more creative ourselves. We need to score a goal but we’re still in the tie.

"I think that Denmark at home had control of the ball and they were trying to probe for openings. I think when we tried to close them down they lost their way a little bit."

The result continued Ireland's unbeaten record away from home in the qualifying campaign.

But, as O'Neill conceded, "Tuesday night is a different matter – we have to win."
