Italy take on Ireland on Monday 18th June, 2012, with kickoff at 19:45. This match is currently being shown LIVE on BBC3.

Ireland have nothing left to play for but their pride, and seeing how well they’ve performed so far you’d say that may even see an improvement in their form. If the Irish are going to perform against anyone it will probably be Italy, seeing as Trapattoni used to manage his national team and will have a great idea about their players and tactics.

On the other hand, it is not like Spain or Croatia reinvented the wheel in beating the Republic, so you can expect them either to perform at a higher level than previously, or suffer another humiliating defeat.
