Martin O'Neill: 'We will attack Germany'

Republic of Ireland boss Martin O'Neill says that his side must make the most of Tuesday's trip to Germany and warns the world champions to expect an attacking display.

Martin O'Neill has called on his Republic of Ireland players to seize the moment and make the most of Tuesday's Euro 2016 qualifier away to Germany.

The Irish face the world champions in Gelsenkirchen as big underdogs to leave with a positive result, and O'Neill, whose side beat Gibraltar 7-0 on Saturday, hints that attack may be the best form of defence.

"We are going with some confidence into the game. If we are pressed back, then okay, but if we deliberately sit in, then Germany will eventually pick you off," he told Sky Sports News.

"We want to try to attack as well. It's a game to relish. It's one where we want to go out and do something about the game, not just let the game disappear."

Kickoff tomorrow is scheduled for 7.45pm.
