Eire take on Netherlands on Friday 27th May, 2016, with kickoff at 19:45. This match is currently being shown LIVE on Premier.

Holland are a really good team with a number of world-class players, and as a result it is both shocking and slightly funny to think they didn’t qualify for Euro 2016. When you consider this championship has more teams than any in recent history it becomes even funnier, although you may experience a moment of sadness when you realise this probably would have been the magnificent Arjen Robben’s swansong at this level.

The Republic will be in attendance this summer of course and would like to win this game to prove they belong, but may find the Dutch a little more combative than is usual.
