Match Preview


Shaun Williams, Republic of Ireland

Ireland travel to Poland to take part in a friendly following on from both sides Nations League games, ending in a defeat for the Boys in Green and a draw for the Eagles 

Despite the 4-1 defeat to Wales, Ireland's full-back Enda Stevens believes that they will be able to bounce back from the loss,

“Thursday was obviously disappointing. Heads were down," Stevens told reporters after the game on Thursday.

“It was an all-round tough night. Every time they went forward they seemed to score and it’s a tough ask to come back from 3-0 down at half-time but we’ve got to get over it as quickly as possible."

Polish forward Lewandowski could earn his 100th senior cap for the national team if playing tonight but manager Jerzy Brzeczek has warned the squad not to start celebrating too soon.

"Even thinking that you can win against Ireland without full engagement could be a huge mistake," Brzeczek said ahead of tonight's game. 

"We have huge respect and we know that 90 minutes of a very good game will decide who is going to leave the pitch as a winner."

Poland are the favourites to win tonight and will be keen to win after a disappointing World Cup where they finished bottom of their group.
