Martin O'Neill, Republic of Ireland manager


It was important for us to get something out of the game. I thought that our second half performance was fantastic and we deserved at least that [a point] and we could have won it had we scored a little bit earlier. That said I thought that we were a little bit tentative in the first half and maybe a little bit nervous with the crowd cheering us on but they stayed with us throughout the game. Overall we're delighted to have got something out of the game, but disappointed that we maybe didn't win it because of our second half performance. But we're still in the competition.

Expectations are high for the Republic of Ireland ahead of tonight's qualifier against Poland with former Ireland manager Brian Kerr writing in The Irish Times that "Ireland can shade this but luck won't be enough" and several newspaper articles describing it as a "must-win" fixture.
