Ireland were drawn in a real Group of Death in the rehearsal for the 2018 World Cup draw
If this is actually the group Ireland are drawn into this evening, then we are in for a lean few years. Before the draw is made in Russia for the 2018 World Cup qualification stage, a mock draw took place and Ireland were dealt a rough hand.
The good news is we got Andorra... the bad news, is everything else.
"In mock 2018 World Cup draw, Rep of Ireland got Holland, France, Scotland, Belarus and Andorra," journalist Philip Quinn tweeted.
Let's all pray that the actual draw goes a lot smoother than this.
