Callum Robinson insisted that the Republic of Ireland should have nothing to lose when the Republic of Ireland went to the League of Nations on Monday night.
Ireland's Friday night was reduced to League C as a result of a 2-1 victory against Wales in Cardiff, and will be proud to play only on Aarhus.
However, after disappointing on a football brand that left the fans wanting only one victory and creativity in 10 games – Ireland gave morale after the goalless draw on Thursday night with Northern Ireland at Aviva Stadium – Preston striker Robinson.
He said: olm We need to go there and be positive. We know that we have to win a victory, so we'll go there and prepare a positive page from here, and hopefully build on it and be a little more creative.
"Yes, of course. Fans go out and come to watch and have fun – so they're coming.
"Obviously, they feel sufficiently frustrated at the moment, which is fair enough, but we have to get together as a group and hopefully we'll be better off after a few trips here."
The game will have a fourth round in just over 12 months with Ireland in November, setting a 0-0 draw in Copenhagen in the first leg of the World Cup play-off in November. The horror show at Dublin on the way back.
There has been another dead end in Aviva last month, though – even though he may be contemptuous of familiarity – Robinson knows that he and his teammates will once again turn against their men of Age Hareide, even if they do not lose their flexibility. He showed us their last trip to Denmark.
He said: v This camp will give you a true faith. Most of the players there were there at the time, so I think going there would be positive.
& As you can see last month, there is a lot of quality in Denmark. There are some good players and it will be a tough one.
”But the kids will get together and I hope they go there and get a good result.“
Targets have been as short as the winnings for Ireland in 2018 – eight games so far have only given four – but at least they can consolidate themselves by the fact that they don't participate too much.
. It's nice to keep a clean sheet, but now we need something to build from there, Rob Robinson said.
“We know we keep clean linens; I hope we can be brave now and get on the ball and try to add more luck to the field and be good. "
