Jonathan Walters: 'Republic of Ireland still have a long way to go to qualify'

Republic of Ireland striker Jonathan Walters admits that his country still have a long way to go before they can earn qualification for Euro 2016.

Republic of Ireland frontman Jonathan Walters has insisted that his country still has a long way to go to secure qualification for Euro 2016.

The Stoke City striker lifted the ROI's hopes on Monday night as his goal saw them past Georgia, leaving Martin O'Neill's men strongly cemented in third place with two games left to play.

"We are a million miles away from qualifying yet. We have got a long way to go - two massive games next month," said Walters, according to BT Sport.

"We'll go back to our clubs and we'll come back and approach them in the right way.

"It was obviously about getting the six points this week and that's what we did. We were hoping other results went our way and they have, but we have still got a long way to go before qualifying."

Ireland still have Germany and Poland to face as part of the qualification process.
