The Republic of Ireland will be looking to bounce back from the heartbreak of losing on penalties against Slovakia to miss out a place at Euro 2020.

Ireland are also looking to recover from their defeat to Finland in their previous Nations League fixture, which leaves them bottom of League B Group 4.

Meanwhile, Wales have made a very strong start to their Nations League campaign beating both Finland and Bulgaria.

On Monday, Ryan Giggs’ side lost to England 3-0 in a friendly and the former Manchester United forward will be hoping for a better performance on Sunday.

Ireland will not be going to next summer’s European Championships after losing to Slovakia on penalties.

After holding Slovakia to a goalless draw, the game went to penalties and Alan Browne and Matt Doherty’s misses saw them eliminated.

Stephen Kenny’s team have also not had much luck in the Nations League so far, picking up just one point from their first two games.
