O’Neill under pressure? Talking points ahead of Republic of Ireland’s clash with Denmark

UK Sport | Published:

Ireland have lost their last two competitive games heavily.

Martin O’Neill sends his Republic of Ireland team into battle with Denmark on Saturday evening hoping to kick-start their Nations League campaign.

A 4-1 defeat in Wales last month, coupled with Denmark’s 5-1 victory in Dublin last November in their previous competitive fixture, have left O’Neill fielding uncomfortable questions about his future.

Here, Press Association Sport takes a look of some of the talking points surrounding the game.

A big week for O’Neill?
