WATCH: RTÉ's promo for Ireland vs Georgia will put you in the mood for football
Martin O'Neill's men have travelled to Georgia this week for a clash with a side that gave us a tough game at the Aviva last year.
Not only that, but Ireland are missing their captain Seamus Coleman through injury, as well as Premier League stars Jeff Hendrick and James McCarthy.
Ireland are currently second in the group as it stands, despite being level on points with Serbia... who will likely put another three points on the board today as they face minnows Moldova in the Serbian capital of Belgrade.
This means an Irish win in Georgia is absolutely essential ahead of the game against Serbia next week.
RTÉ has put together a spectacular "Story So Far" promo for the game, showing all the goals of our qualifying campaign so far. Watching this will fill you with the optimism needed to power yourself all the way down to the pub for today's game. Check it out.
