Republic of Ireland:
Henderson, Finnan, Dunne, Harte, O'Shea, Duff, Carsley, Ireland, Kilbane, Keane, Long.

 
 
You can add Given and Doyle into the above team, How many players then are we short of being a world class team......?!?!?
 
We still look 2 or 3 short to me.........!!!!!

the only world class player we have on our team is Given!
Duff and Keane arent world class as they are too inconsistent

Well there are many countries that can qualify for most if not all world cups with little or no World class players....
 
 
How far are we away from having a Very Good International team that can qualify for most major Chamionships,
 
I reckon at least Given, Finnan, O Shea, Dunne, Duff, Keane, Doyle are well good enough for this ????

Look where we are in the world rankings! Teams like Guinea, Norn Iron and Uzbekistan ahead of us.  I dont think we can lay claim to just needing just 2 or 3 players if we go by this!
