Ireland Drawn With Familiar Foes In UEFA Nations League

Ireland

UEFA Nations League fever has not quite hit the country yet, but Ireland do now know their group for the new competition.

Throughout the end of 2018, the Boys in Green will play games, home and away, against Denmark and Wales.

Martin O’Neill, having officially signed his contract last night, can now look forward to his next competitive game in charge.

The Boys in Green face Wales and Denmark once again, with a chance to gain revenge over the Danes for the World Cup play-off defeat. Meanwhile, the Welsh will be eager to set the record straight themselves, after that James McClean goal.

Away trips to Copenhagen and Cardiff will hold familiarity, as the Green Army prime themselves to set sail once again.

Should Ireland win the three-team group, they will gain promotion to the top tier of the UEFA Nations League, and secure a play-off berth in the Euro 2020 qualifiers should they need it.

Details of the fixtures will be released later today.
