Ireland captain Robbie Keane has dismissed suggestions that tonight's Euro 2012 qualifier against minnows Andorra will be a whitewash.
Speaking ahead of the Group B tie which kicks off in the Aviva Stadium at 7.45pm tonight, the veteran striker said that Ireland would approach the game with the intention of securing three points, but he did not expect a walkover.
"By no means is it going to be an easy game," Keane said.
"We can’t underestimate any team regardless of who it is – that would be disrespectful to them."
Andorra are officially ranked second from bottom in FIFA's European table, but Keane insisted there were no foregone conclusions in international soccer, adding that teams "had got a lot tighter" in recent years.
Manager Giovanni Trapattoni meanwhile said that in picking the same starting 11 that secured a 1-0 victory against Armenia in Yerevan on Friday, he was hoping for a repeat performance.
"We must continue with the same mentality," Trapattoni said, adding that he had not been tempted to blood inexperienced players without being first secure of having a win in the bag.
"I thought about the possibility of changing a couple of players for this match but first I wanted to see if the players who played against Armenia had fully recovered
"I am satisfied they fully recovered so we can start with the same team," he said, adding that he would review his options from the bench if and when a win looked secure.
