The Republic of Ireland’s Robbie Brady admits Saturday’s Euro 2016 qualifier against Scotland is a crucial game for his side.

Martin O’Neill’s men are currently fourth in Group D, two points behind Scotland and Germany and three adrift of leaders Poland.

Defeat would all but end Irish hopes of reaching the finals next summer, while a win would put them back in contention for a top-two finish in Group D and a place in the tournament.

Brady is convinced his side can secure a vital win on Saturday and the 23-year-old Hull winger feels they can draw confidence from Sunday’s 0-0 draw with England in a friendly in Dublin.

He told the BBC: “Definitely it’s a massive game. There’s no doubt about it and we will be all looking forward to it. We were all up for it on Sunday and it was a decent result.

“It’s no-holds-barred, we will be all looking to impress and put on a show for everyone and go and do the job.”

The Republic of Ireland are 2.30 to beat Scotland on Saturday at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.

A win for Scotland is available at 3.40 and a draw is 3.00.

Germany are the current 4.00 favourites to win Euro 2016 in France next summer, while Spain are 7.00 and Italy are priced at 12.00.
