Eire take on Italy on Saturday 31st May, 2014, with kickoff at 19:45. This match is currently being shown LIVE on Premier Sports.

Although they’ve missed out on another major tournament, there was a real sense of progress about the Republic of Ireland squad following the appointment of Martin O’Neill as manager with Roy Keane his assistant, but that might be at risk. Keane is in discussions with Celtic about their vacant managerial position, and while he’s not the main man it would be tough to see him keep his role both with club and country if that goes through.

Italy have a bit of a tough World Cup group, facing both Uruguay and England, and as a result this is a rather bigger game for them.
