Giovanni Trapattoni's men will run out at the A Le Coq Arena in Tallinn knowing a draw would be a decent result to take back to the Aviva Stadium on Tuesday evening.



However, Keane is adamant that a win will be the only thing on their minds as they attempt to take a major stride towards qualification for next summer's showcase finals.



He said: "Listen, as players, you don't go into a game thinking you are going to draw, it's impossible to do it.



"You go into every game thinking you are going to win it, so we are going into this game thinking that we can win it because there is no reason why we can't.



"We have the players to do it and we have the mentality to do it, so there's no reason why we can't do it.



"We go into every game with the same mentality, that we can win this and we can score goals."
