Job done, now forget about it.

That was the message from Republic of Ireland captain Seamus Coleman after Monday night's 2-0 win against a stubborn and organised Gibraltar.

It's a game that will hardly leave a footprint in the memory, and any lingering recollections will be swept away in the rising tide of hype that accompanies Ireland's next home game - against Switzerland in September.

That will most certainly be a tougher night at the office but for now Coleman was keen to take stock of what's been a good opening block of games for the Irish.

"It's job done, ten points from our opening games," he said.

"We won 2-0. Forget about this game, move on, ten points. We’ve some big games coming up.

"We probably could have been better, we could have been a bit more patient in the final third.

"We were very eager to try and score quickly instead of keeping the ball tiring them out. I feel like every time we got it we tried to score."

Whereas Denmark were slow to credit the Boys in Green after Friday's Copenhagen stalemate - Mick McCarthy's side are "a pain in the ass" according to Thomas Delaney - Coleman insisted Ireland never took a determined Gibraltar outfit lightly.

"Credit to them, they have improved massively in a couple of years," the Donegal man said.

"Credit to them, their manager and their players. We know we can be better, we know that. You can’t take anything for granted. Everyone was expecting a three, four, five-nil. But we would never disrespect a team like that."

It's the Swiss up next, a quality side who remain the favourites to win the group.

Ireland may have to conjure their best performance in quite a while to protect their unbeaten status but Coleman is confident there's enough in this crop to make life uncomfortable for the beaten Nations League semi-finalists.

"We’ve got a bit of a head start [in the table]," he added.

"Hopefully we can perform well, we can play on the front foot, make it difficult for them. I don’t think they’ll want to play us either. It’ll be an interesting September."
