Rob's ready

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Robbie Keane forgets any talk of a draw being enough for Ireland today - he says their Euro 2004 clash in Switzerland is 'must win'.

Ireland, with Spurs trio Robbie, Steve Carr and Gary Doherty all in the squad, are one point behind group leaders Switzerland before the make-or-break affair in Basle.

If Ireland win, they are guaranteed a play-off spot, a draw might be enough and then Russia, on the same points as Ireland, come into the equation - they should beat Georgia at home.

"It is a massive game and a must-win," insisted Robbie. "It is one I'm looking forward to."

Any nerves? "No, personally I don't get nerves and just look forward to games and get excited. Like I said, it is going to be a massive game and everything is riding on it.

"We've got a good squad, a good bunch of lads and we would love to turn it around after a bad start for Chrissie and the manager."
