Ireland v Oman


London-based Ireland football fans have a chance to watch their heroes in action next month when Giovanni Trapattoni’s side take on Oman at Craven Cottage.

The boys in green, who begin their campaign to qualify for the 2014 World Cup in Kazakhstan next month, face Oman in a friendly on Tuesday September 11.

Ireland have never previously met the Gulf team, who are coached by former Rangers boss Paul Le Guen and recorded a win over Australia during their own World Cup qualifying programme last year.

Republic full-back Stephen Kelly, who plays his club football at Craven Cottage for Fulham, said: “Everyone knows the Republic has the best supporters in the world, so we are expecting there to be a great atmosphere and look forward to welcoming Oman and their fans.”

The Times are offering five lucky readers the chance to win a pair of tickets for the match, which gets under way at 7.30pm.
