Coleman – We’re disappointed but we’ll regroup for play offs

Seamus Coleman

The Republic of Ireland must overcome a play off if they are to reach the 2016 European Championships in France.

Ireland couldn't replicate the performance against Germany in last nights 2-1 defeat to Poland in Warsaw.

The defeat means O'Neill's side will enter the play-offs next month rather than qualifying automatically.

We'll find out our opponents when the draw itself is made next Sunday morning.

Ireland looked to be on course to be seeded in the play-offs but a series of other results over the weekend have ensured that Ireland could now be ranked sixth among the eight teams.

As things stand today, Ukraine, Croatia, Bosnia, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, Turkey and Slovenia hold the play off spots but Holland could earn a place if they beat the Czech Republic on Tuesday night and Turkey lose at home to Iceland while defending champions Spain could also be in the mix tonight if UKraine gain automatic qualification.

Seamus Coleman say they must now look to the positives and regroup for the play off's...
