Niall Quinn says the Republic of Ireland are starting to believe World Cup qualification is possible after their victory over Austria helped them maintain their unbeaten start. The odds of reaching the 2018 tournament in Russia were stacked against Ireland when they were drawn in a group alongside Wales, Serbia and Austria.However, Irelands 1-0 victory in Vienna on Saturday sent them top of Group D, having secured 10 points from their opening four games. And while Quinn admits that Irelands start has come as a shock, he said Martin ONeills ability to get the best out of his players is the reason why they are in such a strong position.It has taken me by surprise because its a really tough group, Quinn said. Even Serbia look good and suddenly theres four teams in it so its going to be difficult. Republic of Ireland manager Martin ONeill was proud of his players as they became the first away team to beat Austria in a competitive match in Vienna in But ONeill has got a clique going on now. They all believe and the motivation he has brought into that side, and the way that theyre bringing it out in performances, means were starting to believe ourselves.I honestly think fans are of the opinion that the perfect man is managing this team, and that theres another trip on its way in two summers time.Irelands victory over Austria was their first since 1963, and they had James McClean to thank after the West Brom winger netted in the second half. Highlights of the Republic of Irelands World Cup qualifier against Austria. McClean is viewed as a divisive figure - predominantly down to his decision not wear a poppy around Remembrance Day - but Quinn believes the 27-year-old has matured as both a man and a player.James wasnt afraid to come out and say we have to kick on and win the group now, others would just be cautious, said Quinn.Hes as honest as you like, people might disagree with his political principles, but the lad gives absolutely everything hes got.Hes starting to get clever with it and understand the game more. His work-rate is always superb, he works so hard up and down that left side in every game he plays. Harry Arter was pleased to make his competitive debut for the Republic of Ireland and hopes for more wins following victory over Austria. Hes now reading things better, and he saw that opportunity open up as soon as [David] Meyler took the ball. What a ball from Wes [Hoolahan], but still a lot of work to do, and James is playing like a player who just wants more of that now.Quinns praise led fellow Sky Sports pundit Dean Saunders to remind the ex-Sunderland chairman of how he first brought McClean to England in 2011.I signed him in a pub, thats not to say hes a pub player - but his agent met me in a pub, Quinn added.Its one of those things, its great. To see his career develop and blossom, hes had a few bumps to try and get over - but its going well for him.Theres no better feeling. To think that hes gone away to Austria tonight and has scored the winner for his country in such a big game, thats fantastic for him.

While he was away, it was the division-rival Baltimore Orioles conducting a little business of their own, scooping up Ubaldo Jimenez on Monday evening to a reported four-year, $50-million contract. COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The numbers didnt look too promising for Jeff Zatkoff in his first two NHL games. He made up for them by putting up a zero in his third. Deryk Engelland, Chris Kunitz and Jussi Jokinen scored and Zatkoff made 19 saves in his first NHL win to lead the Pittsburgh Penguins past Columbus 3-0 Saturday night for their fourth victory in a row and second over the Blue Jackets in just over 24 hours. "Ive been waiting for a month now," Zatkoff said of his 0-2 record with a 5.06 goals-against average and a .818 save percentage. "It feels like a little weights off my shoulders. Its nice to be able to contribute to the team in the win column." The 26-year-old rookie made several big stops but wasnt very busy as the Blue Jackets squeezed off a season-low in shots. Zatkoff is backing up Marc-Andre Fleury while Tomas Vokoun recovers from preseason surgery. "Jeffs best numbers havent been obviously in the National Hockey League," coach Dan Bylsma said. "Hes been a solid guy. His numbers (in the minors) are outstanding. Tonight I thought there wasnt a ton of work at times in the game for him. But he looked comfortable and really solid." Engelland scored on a rapid-fire one-timer to stake Zatkoff to a lead in the second period before Kunitz picked up his eighth when a shot went in off a Blue Jackets stick in the third. Jokinen added an empty-netter. All anyone could talk about was Zatkoffs shutout and the way the defence played in front of him. "You could see the way the guys were blocking shots and stuff, really taking it upon themselves to play good defence for him," Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby said. "And he made the saves that he had to. Were really happy for him." A crowd of 18,634, including thousands of Penguins fans, cheered wildly when it was announced during the first period that Columbus will host the 2015 NHL All-Star weekend. Perhaps Zatkoffs best save came when he blocked Dalton Prouts hard shot from close range at 8:32 of the third period that would have cut the margin to a goal. It did not appear that Zatkoff knew he was sitting on the puck in the crease. Kunitz made it 2-0 just 47 seconds into the third period on a fluky goal. Before taking a hard check from defenceman Jack Johnson at the right end of the goal line, Kunitz swept the puck toward the goal -- where there were no teammates. But it ricocheted off the stick of trailing Columbus winger Blake Comeau and found the net. Curtis McElhinney, ggetting his second start for the Blue Jackets, looked to the rafters in exasperation.dddddddddddd The game marked the second night in a row that the teams had met. In Pittsburgh on Friday night, the Penguins manhandled the Blue Jackets 4-2 as Fleury was staked to a 4-0 lead and made it stand up with 37 saves. Columbus Sergei Bobrovsky, the Vezina Trophy winner as the NHLs top goalie last year, was pulled in favour of McElhinney after giving up three goals on 13 shots. After a scoreless first period Saturday night, the Penguins scored at the 6:46 mark of the second. Joe Vitale won a puck battle against two Blue Jackets along the wall, then skated to the right corner and saucered a centring pass to Engelland, who unloaded a one-timer from the lower right circle. McElhinney, who stopped 23 other shots, had no chance of stopping it. "Joe just put it right in the wheelhouse," Engelland said of his second goal of the season. "I wasnt picking a corner or anything, but it found its way in." The loss, which touched off a four-game homestand, was the third in a row for Columbus after winning three straight. "(The Penguins) were skating and seemed to have more desperation and urgency in their game," Columbus coach Todd Richards said, comparing the second meeting with the one a night earlier. Even as the game progressed, Zatkoff said he tried not to even think about the possibility of a shutout for his first win. "I tried to block that out and go with the process," he said. "It sounds kind of cheesy but I was worrying about every shot and trying not to look at the scoreboard." NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman and Blue Jackets director of hockey operations John Davidson appeared on the arena monitors over centre ice during a first-period break to announce that the 2015 All-Star Game weekend was coming to Columbus. The 2013 event was supposed to be held at Nationwide Arena, but that was cancelled by the lockout. NOTES: The Penguins play home-and-home games on back-to-back nights three times this season; this was the only such pairing all season for the Blue Jackets. ... Pittsburgh had not played in Columbus since a 7-2 victory on Dec. 4, 2010, victory. ... The Blue Jackets had several points streaks end: James Wisniewski (5), Nick Foligno (3) and Ryan Johansen (3). ... Crosby, leading the NHL in points with 22 coming in, assisted on Jokinens empty-netter to give him at least a point in 13 of the Penguins 15 games. They are 11-2 when he scores, 0-2 when he doesnt.
