IT IS just three hours to kick off and there is already a fear of trapp-idation around Ireland’s journey to the land of the Faroes.
After their 6-1 drubbing at home on Friday to Germany, Giovanni Trappatoni’s red-faced players know he is living on borrowed time.
Anything less than a convincing win this evening (7pm kick off Dubin time) and Giovanni will fall through his own trap door.
The knives are out for him at Dublin’s FAI headquarters after a poor run of performances.
And with Robbie Keane back in the team, leading from the front, a 2-0 win is the least Irish fans can expect this evening.
But if Lars Olsen’s Faroe team produce a massive upset, Trappatoni may well find a ticket at the checkin desk putting him on a flight back to his home country of Italy.
