LUFC International round up - Ireland on the verge

LUFC International round up - Ireland on the verge

Leeds United on loan duo Darren O`Dea and Andy Keogh can almost start getting themselves packed for the trip to the Ukraine and Poland next summer, after Republic of Ireland thumped Estonia on Friday night.

Having been cruelly denied a place in the World Cup finals in 2010 following Thierry Henry`s deliberate handball for France, Ireland are within touching distance of reaching their first major finals since the World Cup in 2002.

Ireland won 4-0 in the first leg of their play off in Estonia in their fight for a place in the Euro 2012 finals next year.

Former Leeds striker Robbie Keane scored twice and further goals from summer transfer target Keith Andrews and Jonathan Walters ensured a comfortable win.

Both O`Dea and Keogh were unused substitutes in the game.

The second leg takes place on Tuesday night in Dublin.

Robert Snodgrass played no part in Scotland`s 2-1 win in Cyprus on Friday night who won thanks to goals from Kenny Miller and Jamie Mackie.

Elsewhere, former Leeds midfielder James Milner started for England in their 1-0 win over world champions Spain at Wembley.

Former Leeds midfielder Gary Speed continues his revival as Wales manager as they defeated Norway 4-1 in Cardiff.

Wales have now won four of their last five international games under the guidance of Speed, who was an integral part of the Leeds midfield the last time they won the League championship in 1992.

As well as Keogh and O`Dea on international duty next week.

Aidy White is with the Ireland under 21 squad when they play Liechtenstein on Monday night in their Euro 2013 qualifier.

Mika Vayrynen and Mikael Forssell are also on international duty in the week with Finland, who face Scandinavian opposition in Denmark.
