It will be a new look Ireland team that O'Neill will field against Denmark on Saturday. The changes are partly down to injuries and partly down to large part of their ageing team having retired.
The first leg in Denmark had ended in a 0-0 draw followed by a 5-1 thrashing administered by the Danes in Dublin. The Irish are desperate to avoid a similar humbling.
The good news for the Irish is that Christian Eriksen, the mastermind behind the 5-1 win, will likely miss the clash in Dublin as he recovers from an abdominal injury. The Danish midfield maestro has missed Spur's last four games.
The Irish will not miss Eriksen on Saturday
Since the World Cup 2018, where Denmark exited to Croatia after penalties in the round-of-16, the Danes beat Wales 2-0 in the UEFA Nations League. They had previously been beaten by Slovakia in a friendly, but had fielded an entirely amateur team after a disagreement with their sponsors.
Ireland lost their first UEFA Nations League match against Wales 4-1 and then drew with Poland in a friendly.
The bookies have the two teams as very even, with Denmark edging it as favourites. But, that still makes these promotional odds of 60/1 incredibly good value.
