Ireland put their hopes for qualification for the Fifa World Cup in 2018 on the line tonight at the Aviva Stadium against Serbia. Anything short of a win will likely see us heading to Wales next month for the final group game needing to get a win.
Wales travel to Moldova tonight then to Georgia when we face the weakest group in the group in our penultimate game. Providing they win tonight they will nudge ahead of the Republic of Ireland into second place in the group.
If we win however we jump ahead of Serbia into top spot.
As they say it’s all in our hands.
Given that the Wales game will likely be so crucial we decided to take a look at how both teams worked with their sponsors Three and Vauxhall over recent days to promote star players meeting fans.
The Irish video, part of Three’s #TheCallUp series is a slicker, better produced piece of work which is a good thing though the Welsh video with Vauxhall is more of a fly on the wall and takes in a few more fans and even a few training drills.
The FAI are among the more than 220 organisations that play an active part of the Sport for Business community.
