Elsewhere in the group, Ireland may not be going to Brazil but there is still a lot to play for when they welcome Kazakhstan to the Aviva Stadium on Tuesday.
With a new manager yet to appointed, the players will be keen to put in a strong performance to cement their places in the regime.
There is also the small matter of the qualifying for Euro 2016, with seeing based on UEFA coefficient (calculated from results in competitive games in the three previous campaigns) rather than FIFA rankings.
Ireland’s strong World Cup 2010 and Euro 2012 qualifying performances puts Ireland in a good position, they are currently 21st going into tomorrow’s matches, however with another round of matches on Tuesday and the play off’s yet to come it is out of Ireland’s hands although a good win would help matters.
With goals the order of the day Ireland’s interim manager Noel King will give Robbie Keane every chance to prove his fitness.
The 33 year old missed the game with Germany with an ankle injury but King is confident that his talisman will be fit for the Tuesday’s clash telling reporters “Robbie is still recovering, hopefully. I don’t know whether he will train (on Sunday) – I don’t think he will – but hopefully (on Monday), he will do a full stint.”
“I am hoping he is fit for selection.”
Anthony Stokes will once again fill the void should Keane fail to make the clash while the Irish have received a boost with Richard Dunne and John O’Shea, who were suspended for the first half of the double-header, returning to the squad. They are likely to come straight back into the team with Stephen Kelly and Damian Delaney making way.
Ciaran Clarke is also likely to step aside with Marc Wilson reverting to left back while James McClean will hope to get are recall with Ireland tipped to play a more attack minded formation.
Ireland needed two late goals to beat the Kazakhstan’s in the opening game of the groups but given their hosts only picked up their first away point of the group in a 1-1 draw with the Faroes at the weekend, King will be confident.
The group’s final game will see the Faroes Islands and Austria clash and win for the Austrian would seal third spot, although a shock loss would still be enough given their superior goal difference to Ireland.
The Faroe Islanders will head into the game full of confidence after picking up their first point of the qualifiers at the weekend.
