Roy Keane is refusing to call Ireland's World Cup 2018 qualification group good or bad after the draw and fixtures were revealed at the weekend.
The Irish assistant boss feels the big hitters in the group, Wales, Austria and Serbia, will have no fear in facing the Boys in Green when the campaign gets underway in September 2016.
Keane was speaking at the launch of the SSE Airtricity National under-17 league at FAI headquarters in Abbotstown earlier today
Whether the assistant manager remains in his position, alongside his boss Martin O'Neill ahead of the World Cup qualifiers, remains to be seen.
When asked about it, Keane admitted that he is keeping his options open and still has designs on taking a manager's job if the right one becomes available
