Teams, news and highlights in World Cup qualifier

The midfielder had been training with his national squad in the hope that he could prove his fitness for either or both of Ireland's World Cup qualifiers against Moldova and the Welsh but it appears as though he remains short of being ready.

The most damaging result of all came last night.

Before a ball was kicked this week, Portugal were already assured of a playoff spot at worst and may yet overhaul 100 percenters Switzerland at the top of the Group B table if they beat them in Lisbon on Tuesday.

As it turned out, a Faroese political science student, Jakup Emil Hansen, worked out that his nation should be 0.07 points ahead of Wales and, as a result, Federation Internationale de Football Association were forced to back-track and granted Kerr his ambition with a place in Pot 5, relegating Gary Speed's Wales into Pot 6.

It's enough to give even the most hardened statistician a headache.

"Whatever game-plan we have, we have to utilise it as best we can". "For all the possession they had, they didn't really cut us open".

It was a big night too for Meyler as he led his country out, although he insisted collective rather than individual achievements were the priority.

Trump's latest remarks - issued from his luxury golf resort in New Jersey - could further inflame sentiment. Bernie Sanders said President Donald Trump's attack on the mayor of San Juan is "unspeakable".

"I'd much prefer to be planning with him than planning without him".

The results: Europe: Group D: Georgia 0 lost to Wales 1 (Lawrence 49); Austria 3 (Burgstaller 25, Arnautovic 76, Schaub 89) bt Serbia 2 (Milivojevic 11, Matic 83); Republic of Ireland 2 (Murphy 2, 19) bt Moldova 0.

Though the same could be said for Wales who pinned Ireland back early on with Hal Robson-Kanu headed a corner wide after three minutes and Randolph had to tip an Aaron Ramsey shot over.

"We can't control what's said, I never talk about what's happened in the past. well except the 93 generation because that was me and we never got there!"

Ampadu's father, Kwame, grew up in Dublin and played four times for the Ireland Under-21s. There's no doubt they will travel in their thousands and as I say, it's going to be like a cup final, we need to go there and win and we will be looking to do that.

After 6 years of maths, the equation is simple - lose and the dream is over.
