Shay Given is hoping Republic of Ireland's luck holds and they can safely negotiate the Euro 2012 play-offs.
Giovanni Trapattoni's men kept their European Championship dream alive on Tuesday with a 2-1 victory over Armenia.
That victory secured them second spot in Group B and a place in Thursday's play-off draw.
Ireland have been seeded alongside Portugal, Croatia and Czech Republic - theoretically handing them an easier route to Ukraine and Poland.
Given hopes that proves to be the case, with Turkey, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Estonia or Montenegro set to provide their opposition.
Asked for his preference, he said with a smile: "Somebody easy.
"We will just take it on the chin. Whoever we play will know they are in for a very tough game when they come here, and we will give them a tough game at their home place as well.
"Please God, we can get across the line this time and get through the play-offs."
Given was part of the Ireland squad that saw off Iran in a play-off to reach the 2002 World Cup, but suffered heartache two years ago when a controversial handball from Thierry Henry helped France book their place at the 2010 World Cup.
While Ireland's luck was most definitely out that day, they did get the rub of the green in their latest international outing.
Armenia were unfortunate to see their goalkeeper Roman Berezovsky dismissed on 26 minutes for handling outside the area, as the ball appeared to hit his chest, but Given believes it is about time fate smiled on the Irish.
He said: "I was a long way off, but it looked to me like handball. But people are then saying it maybe hit him in the chest.
"I don't know, but maybe we are due a little bit of luck. We got a little bit, but we scored a couple of good goals and we are just happy.
"Sometimes you have just got to enjoy it and we will enjoy the victory and we will enjoy getting 21 points in the group.
"It's been a long campaign and hopefully we can finish it off next month."
