FIFA09 Rating4 Stars

Republic of Ireland are a European based International team who are rated 4 stars on the FIFA 09 game. Their most notable players are Shay Given, Richard Dunne, John O'Shea, Aiden McGeady, Damien Duff and Robbie Keane. With Given in goal, they have a top goalkeeper, and probably one of the most underrated keepers on the game. Their defense is a very strong one with Dunne and Manchester United player John O'Shea in the centre of defense. Two strong and capable defenders who will be difficult to find a way past. McGeady and Duff play on the wings, and are both pretty quick, with McGeady probably just edging it in that aspect, and are both very good crossers of the ball, and will be able to supply captain; Robbie Keane and his striker partner Kevin Doyle with a lot of balls which could certainly be nodded in for a goal or two. A decent all round team, and one which can certainly hold their own against some of the bigger national sides.
