Giovanni Trapattoni Signs New Contract With Republic of Ireland

The Football Association of Ireland has rewarded the Republic of Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni and his assistants, Marco Tardelli and Fausto Ross, with new contracts through to the end of the World Cup 2014 qualifying campaign. Earlier this month Trapattoni successfully guided Ireland through a play-off against Estonia and into next year's European Championships. Euro 2012 will be the country's first major tournament since World Cup 2002 and only their second European Championships since their debut in 1988.

Ireland will tackle Germany, Sweden, Austria, Kazakhstan and the Faroe Islands in World Cup 2014 Qualifying Group C. They will be desperate to bounce back from their agonising, yet hugely controversial, World Cup 2010 play-off defeat to France and book their place in Brazil. They kick off their campaign away to Kazakhstan on September 7th 2012, before welcoming the group favourites Germany to the Aviva Stadium just over a month later on October 12th. Betfred have Ireland priced at 8/1 to win the group.

In his 42 games in charge Trapattoni has guided Ireland to 19 wins, 15 draws and eight defeats, with their recent good form taking them up to 21st in the FIFA World Rankings. Ireland suffered just one defeat in 10 qualification games and have impressively kept 10 clean sheets in their last 12 fixtures, conceding just two goals in that period. Trapattoni has expressed his delight at earning a new deal and along with his players will now eagerly look forward to the Euro 2012 Group Stage draw this Friday. Ireland have been placed in the fourth pot and could be drawn in the same group as Fabio Capello's England. Ireland are available at 50/1 with Betfred to win Euro 2012.
