After losses to Armenia and Ukraine in Ireland's first two games of the Nations League, a 3-0 win over Scotland at the Aviva eased pressure on the Boys in Green. In what was an all round better performance and showing from the side, goals from Alan Browne, Troy Parrott and a Michael Obafemi screamer, sealed a first ever Nations League win for Stephen Kenny's side.

Ukraine beat Ireland last Wednesday courtesy of a free kick from Viktor Tsygankov just after the interval. Since then the Ukranians beat Armenia 3-0 on Saturday, putting them on top of the table with their 100% start to the campaign intact.

Team News:

Shane Duffy and John Egan have been ruled out of the game through injury with Darragh Lenihan and Jimmy Dunne called up to replace the experienced duo. Both Lenihan and Dunne are just off the back of impressive seasons with their clubs in the Championship and will be keen to show their ability on the international stage.

Michael Obafemi was taken off with an injury in the game against Scotland and it is still yet to be known whether the striker will be fit to start against Ukraine.

Obafemi described the injury as a "little niggle" during his post match interview.
