RICHARD DUNNE firmly believes that Martin O'Neill will restore the Republic of Ireland's fortunes in the forthcoming European Championship campaign, which begins next month with a trip to Georgia.

Ireland are 70th in the current FIFA rankings, but Dunne insists that better times are on the way.

"People always say that there is not enough Premier League experience, but once you get the group of lads together, it's as strong a team as any around.

"We have this big spirit and, even when we are not expected to do anything, we pull out big results and put in great performances.

"James McCarthy and Séamus Coleman are world-class and there are plenty more who have real quality.

"Over time, this squad will gel together and I am sure that we will have a really good run at it in the next campaign."

Meanwhile, QPR manager Harry Redknapp talked down the possibility of signing Kevin Doyle, whom he took on loan from Wolves halfway through last season.

"I love Kevin. He is a great guy who works his socks off every time he plays. It was a pleasure to have at the club last season. But I don't know what will happen with Kevin," Redknapp said.

"Sure, I need strikers, but Loic Remy might be staying with us. We have to see if he does while we look around."
