Shane Duffy has declared that Ireland are capable of conquering any of their potential World Cup play-off opponents even if today's draw lands them a tough test with Italy.The Derryman sustained a groin injury in Brighton's Premier League draw with Everton last Sunday and he is waiting on the results of a scan.

Duffy is desperate to be fit for the November dates because he feels that victory in Cardiff has given Martin O'Neill's side a renewed belief in their ability to produce an upset against vaunted opponents.For about eight or nine minutes Roy keeps it up, slating every last thing he doesn't like about Mick, the Ireland set-up, our preparations for the tournament, the delay in the delivery of our training gear, the state http://www.officialmarlinshop.com/authentic-27-giancarlo-stanton-jersey.html of the practice pitch, our professionalism as a squad, everything he can think of. By the end he's not even raging any more, it's just a total destruction of Mick, personally and professionally.

Roy is hemmed in because of the way the seats have been Muhammad Wilkerson Youth jersey arranged around these tables for dinner. The only thing http://www.49ersofficialsproshop.com/Joe_Williams_Jersey_Cheap between him and Mick is Kev Kilbane, who just so happens to have sat in the worst place in the entire room at that moment. He's like a tennis umpire, looking left and right, left and right, wondering where the next volley is coming from. The boss stands there, absorbing Roy's abuse. He's clearly taken the approach that it's best to let Roy get it all out, in front of everybody. Finally, after 10 minutes - or several lifetimes, depending on how you feel about it - Roy sits down. He's said his piece.
To me, Roy had seemed a bit 'off', a bit distracted, for the entirety of the build-up to the World Cup, even from the moment we left Ireland. He complained about how chaotic http://www.officialauthenticsteelershop.com/WOMENS-VINCE-WILLIAMS-JERSEY.html our preparations were and, to be fair, he had a point. If you believe in omens there were plenty to choose from. When we got to Dublin airport for our flight, it was bedlam, full of fans, the Taoiseach, Bertie Ahern, was there for some reason - was it election time? - and there were people dressed as http://www.cowboysshopnfl.com/cowboys+xavier+woods+jersey leprechauns with Guinness hats on, you name it.
O'Neill said last week that Italy were the team he would fear when the draw takes place in Zurich this afternoon, although he added that he would be apprehensive about a showdown with any of the seeded sides.Croatia, Denmark and Switzerland are Muhammad Wilkerson Youth jersey the other possible opponents, with Northern Ireland, Greece and Sweden on the other unseeded teams.
Duffy (25) is not too perturbed by the hand that is dealt Ireland's way, insisting: "We fancy ourselves against anyone - even if Muhammad Wilkerson Youth jersey it is the Italians."We believe in ourselves. We believe that we can beat anyone. A lot of people wrote us off but we always come back.
O'Neill's men have climbed to 26th in the latest FIFA Muhammad Wilkerson Youth jersey world rankings but that wasn't enough to make them a seeded side - that was well known before the list was officially released.Switzerland are the highest-ranked seeded side in 11th spot, with 2006 champions Italy placed 15th, Croatia 18th and Denmark 19th.
Northern Ireland are the best of the rest in 23rd, with Sweden one place ahead of Ireland in 25th and Greece the lowest-ranked participant down in 47th spot.Germany top the latest rankings, with Brazil second, Portugal third and Argentina fourth even though they qualified for the finals by only the skin of their teeth.
