The Republic of Ireland have been handed a string of Sunday afternoon kick-offs in their Nations League fixture list which has been confirmed by Uefa.

As had been originally planned, Stephen Kenny’s side will kick-off their campaign in Sofia on September 3rd, then face Finland at the Aviva stadium on Sunday the 6th at 5pm.

After the Euro2020 playoff semi-final away to Slovakia on October 8th, Wales will then come to Dublin on Sunday the 11th for what will be a 2pm kick-off after which Ireland will travel to Helsinki for the second game against Finland on the 14th.

If Kenny’s side progresses to the playoff final in will be on November 12th, the first of three games that month with Wales away, again a Sunday 5pm kick-off, following on the 15th and Bulgaria at home on Wednesday the 18th wrapping up what will be a busy, and hugely important, spell for the new manager.
