Denmark will be buoyed by the fact that Ireland's home record in this campaign hasn't been particularly strong - in matches against Wales, Austria and Serbia they scored just one goal and collected two points from a possible nine.

"There are different passes and different angles we can set up, get more people in front of the ball and that will make us more unsafe".

He said: "It will be more hard to get back in the game if Ireland score first, they are good at defending and it will probably make them more eager to defend so that is hard".

"You could see Eriksen looking at his team-mates by the end wondering why they weren't finding him in pockets of space, because that's what he's used to at Tottenham".

Leicester City and Danish goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel was critical of the pitch following the 0-0 draw on Saturday, calling it "horrendous" that wasn't conducive to support Denmark's style of play. We've got to concentrate and that's what we'll do. We only have to score one goal to get to a World Cup, that is a fantastic opportunity which we have to take'. You can't get ahead of yourselves and go all guns blazing and lose the match early on and chase it down. We'll try and stay in the game as long as we can and we're confident we can score goals against them at home.

"I'm not too disappointed because we're confident of getting a good result in Dublin", he said.

"It will be a different match", said the Rosenborg hitman.

Brighton defender Shane Duffy says Ireland will be a different team playing at home and is hoping for another night to remember.

He added: 'I think with Martin, he finds a way. They are a big team and matched us in a way that...we probably shut each other out.

'They just want us to make a mistake, ' said Hareide.

"It was scruffy, ugly". But you've got to give credit, we kept a clean sheet out here, defensively solid. "They were very dogged".

Martin O'Neill's team have to score if they are to progress without the need for penalties, but asked if he is expecting a more expansive approach, Hareide said: "If you look at the stats from qualification, nothing seems to go in that direction".
