Wilson questions Republic of Ireland's long-ball tactics

Marc Wilson has urged the Republic of Ireland to abandon the long-ball approach in a desperate bid to revive their faltering World Cup qualifying campaign.

I don't think we get in enough positions to get ourselves forward.

I think we need to play through the middle a bit more and pass the ball to create chances for us to go forward more.
