Alan A'Court: Footballer who played a crucial role in Liverpool's rise to join the elite in the early Shankly years
Saturday 19 December 2009

Victory for the Republic of Ireland tonight would all but guarantee them a World Cup play-off spot at least and maintain their chances of pipping world champions Italy to automatic qualification, while a draw – the result they have achieved in their last three away games in the campaign, against Montenegro, Italy and Bulgaria – would be a creditable return.
