Get out the Kilbankini for Road to Rio

Get out the Kilbankini. Ireland’s journey to reach World Cup 2014 in Brazil begins and ends in glorious nation of Kazakhstan. Germany, Sweden, and Austria all stand in the way of Giovanni Trapattoni’s quest to lead the Green Army to the shores of Copacabana. And we will approach the qualifiers off the back of an appearance at a first European Championships in 24 years.

With the draw for Euro 2012 just around the corner, the fixtures for Ireland’s World Cup 2014 qualifiers have been announced. Germany and Sweden would appear the biggest obstacles to Giovanni Trapattoni’s attempts to lead the Republic to Brazil (presuming he is offered a new contract). Indeed we may yet be drawn against both sides in the group stages in Poland and Ukraine. We begin and end our campaign against Kazakhstan with Germany coming to Dublin early in the second game. Buckle up for the Rocky Road to Rio.
