Enda Stevens is determined to right the wrongs of March's hugely disappointing night against Luxembourg when Ireland face the same opponents away from home in the final 2022 World Cup qualifier of the campaign on Sunday.
The Boys in Green will run out at the Stade de Luxembourg still smarting from the 1-0 home defeat suffered at the hands of the same opposition at the Aviva Stadium earlier this year as hopes of making it to Qatar next year suffered a major blow.
Three days after losing 3-2 in Serbia, a result which was harsh on Stephen Kenny's side, the team succumbed to Gerson Rodrigues' 85th-minute strike, a result which piled the pressure on a manager who had not at that point presided over a victory in 10 attempts.
"Definitely it was a low point for us. We didn't perform well and it was just kind of the game that got away from us," Sheffield United left-back Stevens said.
"We had an unlucky game in Serbia and we wanted to kick on and it just didn't happen for us. It was just a huge disappointment.
"We were just flat, the dressing room was flat after the game. We had to pick ourselves up, it was a tough result for us."
The 31-year-old added: "We've got a point to prove against them. It's something to play for. We're playing for pride and we want to finish as high as we can in this group stage. It's going to be a tough game over there, but one we look forward to.
"We want to progress and we want to move forward and we have that style of play now, formation, and we want to keep getting better.
"There is plenty of room for improvement in that process. We're always going to tinker with it for each opposition and we're all kind of building that momentum and style of play, we're learning it and growing as a team and as a squad. It can only bode well for the future."
