What is the team news?
Kenny confirmed his 26-man squad for the Latvia and France games last week, with Mikey Johnston included for the first time.
There are also returns for Adam Idah, Andrew Omobamidele and Jason Knight, but Shane Duffy and Enda Stevens miss out through injury.
Ireland supporters will be keen to get a look at Evan Ferguson from the start, and Kenny may use the game as an opportunity to try out the in-form teenager ahead of the more important France test.
However, with the Brighton forward and John Egan both having come through FA Cup quarter-finals on Sunday, the manager may just manage their minutes due to the quick turnaround.
