Ireland took a deserved point home from Saturday's clash against France in Paris and now everyone expects them to beat the minnows in Dublin.
However, both are well-aware of the improvement in the Faroe Islands in recent yeats - improvement underlined by this qualifying campaign.
The Faroes pushed France all the way in only losing 2-1 and took a point against Cyprus at the weekend.
The game also gives Robbie another chance to break the current Irish goalscoring record.
He said: "The Faroes did well against France and I am sure the draw against Cyprus will give them a lot of confidence going into Wednesday's game, but we have a lot of confidence ourselves, particularly after our result against France.
"They've improved a lot and we'll approach that game exactly the same way we approach France."
Spurs coach and Ireland's assistant manager Chris added: "We've seen on tape the French game against the Faroe Islands and it wasn't easy for France. Even though France won the game, they had Vieira sent off and it was tough for them."
Our Republic of Ireland pair Robbie Keane and Chris Hughton have promised to take the Faroe Islands just as seriously as France in tonight's World Cup qualifier.
