Crucial Rep of Ireland U21 qualifier LIVE on eir sport

The Republic of Ireland's crucial Euro 2021 U21 qualifier against Iceland on Sun, November 15th will be shown LIVE on eir sport. Coverage starts at 12.15pm on eir sport 2 ahead of the 12.30pm kick-off.

With two games left to play, Jim Crawford's side are in with an excellent chance of progressing to the finals next year which are set to be hosted jointly by Hungary and Slovenia.

Following a 2-0 defeat away to group leaders Italy a fortnight ago, the Republic of Ireland are second in the table on 16 points. the same number as the Italians but with a vastly inferior goal difference. They have also played a game more. 

Sweden and Iceland are in third and fourth respectively on 15 points, with Iceland having played a game less than both the Irish and Swedes.

A victory over Iceland at Tallaght Stadium on November 15th, followed by a win in Luxembourg three days later, would guarantee the Republic at least a place in the play-offs if not direct qualification. 

The group winners plus the best five runners-up from the nine groups qualify automatically, with the remaining four runners-up going into the play-offs.
