Ireland travel to Paris at full strength
Ireland go into their World Cup play-off second-leg with France at full strength with no injuries to report.
It is do-or-die for Giovanni Trapattoni's men as they prepare to fly to Paris on Tuesday trailing 1-0 from the first-leg at Croke Park.
Ireland performed admirably on Saturday but still fell to a deflected 72nd minute Nicolas Anelka strike, handing the French the initiative ahead of the return match on Wednesday.
However, having trained on Monday assistant boss Marco Tardelli highlights that the team will be at full strength and go into the clash full of confidence despite the deficit.
"We have no injuries and we have a very high morale. There are no problems," he said.
"We are ready for the next match."
The Green Army will start to descend on Paris tomorrow with between ten and fifteen thousand Irish expected in the French capital.
