Serbia take on Republic of Ireland on Monday 5th September, 2016, with kickoff at 19:45. This match is currently being shown LIVE on Sky Sports 2.
The Republic of Ireland were also in France this summer gone, which in some ways demonstrates how much easier that is to achieve than it has been in previous years, and in all honesty their fans made more headlines than the team. Doing nice things in public while Russian ran amok, sponsored by their state, took the Republic up the neutrals table, but in the end it wasn’t enough and they crashed out.
Today they face a very talented Serbian side in front of what is likely to be a noisy, aggressive and extremely committed crowd, so expect a great atmosphere, and maybe some good football.
