West Ham star expresses his World Cup aspirations

According to reports, West Ham United goalkeeper Darren Randolph is targeting a place at the 2018 World Cup with the Republic of Ireland national team.

The 30-year-old Randolph said, “We can definitely finish in the top two, it’s like any small group, if you can take points off the teams who are going to be the biggest threats to you to qualify, those wins are massive.”

Randolph was impressive during the European Championships last year, helping Ireland to reach the quarter finals of the event for the first time in their history and he is hoping to star once again in the World Cup should his country qualify.

The Martin O’Neill led Ireland currently in second place on Group D behind Serbia on goal difference, with each side having 12 points.

They next take on Georgia and Serbia in September and should they manage to secure wins in both matches qualification, a place in at least the playoffs will be on the cards for the Irish.
