Stephen Kenny has named his Republic of Ireland team to take on Ukraine this evening, making a number of changes to the side that defeated Scotland at the weekend.
Caoimhín Kelleher retains his place in goals, but there has been plenty of change in the back three. With Shane Duffy suspended and John Egan unavailable due to family reasons, Dara O'Shea and Darragh Lenihan come in to partner Nathan Collins.
Alan Browne and James McClean continue at wingback, with Kenny opting for a midfield three for the second successive game. The trio of Josh Cullen, Jayson Molumby, and Jason Knight all start once again.
Up front, Michael Obafemi has been ruled out due to injury, meaning Scott Hogan will partner Troy Parrott.
Festy Ebosele has been included in the matchday squad for the first time at senior international level. Here is the team in full.

Ireland will be hoping for a better performance than they produced against the same opposition last week. Of course, this fixture takes place in Poland due to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.
Oleksandr Petrakov will put out a stronger team for this game, having made ten changes for their visit to Dublin. As a result, Kenny's side will have to have a strong showing if they are to get anything from this game.
A victory in this game would ease Ireland's Nations League relegation concerns for now, while it would also give them an outside chance of earning promotion when the competition concludes with two fixtures in September.
