Giovanni Trapattoni shows his frustration at Croke Park
Republic of Ireland boss Giovanni Trapattoni is unlikely to make any changes for Wednesday's World Cup play-off second leg against France in Paris.
Trapattoni's side have a mountain to climb after Saturday's 1-0 first-leg defeat at Croke Park but the Irish boss insists his team can still qualify.
"All the players played well and are fit. I don't have in my mind to change anything," said Trapattoni.
Abou Diaby, Jeremy Toulalan and Eric Abidal are all ruled out for France.
Diaby, who didn't feature against the Irish in Saturday's first leg, pulled out of the French squad on Monday because of a calf injury.
Full-back Abidal, who lined out at Croke Park, is ruled out by a thigh injury while Toulalan missed Saturday's game and remains unavailable because of a hamstring injury.
Either Julien Escude or Sebastien Squillaci will replace Abidal in the French defence.
Trapattoni left it until the last minute before plumping for Liam Lawrence on the right side of midfield and the Republic boss was delighted with the Stoke player's contribution.
"The performance of (Damien) Duff and Lawrence was super," he said.
The two sets of players clashed in the centre circle at the final whistle and Trapattoni insisted that the flare-up was the result of an unrepeatable insult.
"One player said something to one of my players which I cannot repeat (it was so bad)," added Trapattoni.
"A famous player insulted the player. I name the sin but not the player. You cannot insult the Irish people like this," he said.
