CITY TRIO'S WORLD CUP DREAMS STILL ALIVE

10 October 2017

The World Cup dreams of City trio Adam Thompson, Shay McCartan and Colin Doyle are still alive following the final round of qualifiers.

Monday night's dramatic 1-0 victory in Wales for Doyle's Republic of Ireland saw them secure a spot in the Play-Offs.

Following his fine performance in City's 4-1 win at MK Dons at the weekend, Doyle was listed as a substitute for Ireland at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Northern Ireland will also make up part of the World Cup Play-Offs despite losing 1-0 in Norway on Sunday.

Thompson was part of the group that made the journey to Oslo, although team-mate McCartan was unable to join up with the squad due to a calf problem.

The two-legged World Cup Play-Offs will take place between the 9-14 November 2017.
