Martin O’Neil’s Republic of Ireland will face a tough test in Group E when they come up against Belgium, Italy and Sweden. How will they cope with the likes of De Bruyne, Hazard, Zlatan, El Shaarawy?
It’s a tough ask, and one which should prove a step too far for the Irish. We can’t really see them getting out of the group unless it’s via one of the four third place spots. Let’s hope the luck of the Irish can sneak them through!
The key man to watch for the Republic of Ireland will be Shane Long with his constant running and high energy game. With 10 PL goals to this name this season and 4 assists, he’s bound to frighten defences.
He’s worth a cheeky punt at 150/1 to be the tournaments top goalscorer.
