The FC crew lambaste the scoreless draw between Ireland and Wales, and react to Seamus Coleman's horrific injury.

"There's nothing you can really study", says Randolph.

Bale is the talisman for Wales tonight, his dead balls having put more than one team to the sword, but West Ham keeper Randolph is not too stressed. I've only seen it in real time when it happened and I didn't see a lot. He has had a serious injury himself in the past and is a great boy. He's loved by everyone, he's a big player and he will be a big loss.

Taylor was sent off for the challenge and was "despondent" in the dressing room after the game, according to Wales boss Chris Coleman.

Ireland pressed late on and despite a couple of nervy catches from Wayne Hennessey, 10-man Wales weathered the storm to take a point back to South Wales. What you find is that players and coaches have tried to come up with a plan [to stop him] before, but top players figure it out and affect the game anyway.

"In the moment of a game it's a battle, it's two teams going at it, nation v nation".

"He played very, very strongly", O'Neill said.

Had Ireland snatched a late victor, as almost happened when James McClean's effort was deflected the wrong side of the post, Martin O'Neill's side would have remained two points clear at the top of the group.

Ireland slip to second in the Group D standings, level on points with Serbia at the top but behind on goal difference.

Not only that, but Wales would have been cut seven points adrift and virtually out of contention.

All the momentum in this group is on our side and with that wonderful Irish crowd behind them, Martin O'Neill and his players should be confident of getting a result against the Welsh. Austria won [against Moldova], they're not out of it.
