Aiden McGeady: Ireland winger expects Faroe Islands to provide a tough test

Giovanni Trapattoni's men are locked in a battle with Sweden and Austria to finish second behind Germany in Group C of the World Cup qualifiers.

Although goal difference could play a part come the end of the campaign, McGeady believes winning the match is simply the priority for Ireland.

"You don't want to disrespect the Faroes - it was a tough game when we played there and Sweden had a tough game there as well," the 27-year-old said.

"First of all, we just want to win. If we can get some goals, then that would be nice, but first and foremost it's just trying to get the three points because it won't be easy.

"You look at when Sweden played them - they were drawing 1-1 up until the last five, 10 minutes of the game away from home.

"You are expected to go there and beat the Faroes like it's a pretty easy game, but it's not. These guys will play football and they can make it very difficult for you.

"The first half especially for us over there was difficult. We played okay and we got some goals in the end, but the pressure is obviously going to be on us on Friday."

ever ceases to amaze me when ex players come out with comments like that. Clearly they have zero interest in the best interests of a club that provided them with a living to be making such idiotic and boorish comments as that. Shame on you Jimmy Case.

ait, so now he can get injured when he's not on international duty? It's almost as if his previous injury could've happened at any time and being with the England squad had nothing to do with it.
