Irish hope for Greece to beat Romania

Greece host Romania in Athens tonight in a game which will be the focus of Irish eyes.

That's because victory for Romania in both games will not only qualify them for the World Cup, but will also relegate Ireland to third seeds in the draw for the Euro 2016 qualifiers.

Striker Razvan Cocis believes Romania can crack one of the meanest defences in the business and book their nation's place in the finals for the first time since 1998.

"This is the most important and challenging tie of our careers," said Cocis. "Our goal is to score in the first game, but even if we draw 0-0, it is a good result for us."
