The Republic of Ireland kept their World Cup dreams alive with a pulsating 1-nil victory over Wales in their final Group D qualifier in Cardiff last night.

The Boys in Green beat their hosts to the play off spot, thanks to James McClean's sensational goal.

There were 57 minutes on the clock when the Derryman smashed home a Jeff Hendrick cross, which Harry Arter had cleverly stepped over.

Ireland will learn their next opponents, when the draw for the play offs takes place in Zurich next week.

As things stand, Italy and Croatia will be possible opponents as they will be seeded for the play-offs.

Portugal will also be in the play-offs unless they beat Switzerland in Lisbon, while it's predicted Denmark will leapfrog Northern Ireland in the FIFA World Rankings, meaning they'll also be seeded

The games will take place next month.

The opening tie is scheduled for the second week of November, with the second leg to be played 7 days later.
