Just two matches into the Stephen Kenny era, Ireland find themselves in a massive game against Slovakia — and thankfully it’s on free-to-air TV.
Kenny’s managerial tenure didn’t get off to an ideal start last month, as Ireland failed to win either of the two games against Bulgaria and Finland.
With the Boys in Green now potentially two games away from Euro 2020, here are all the crucial details you need to know ahead of the senior squad’s trip to Slovakia.
Where is Ireland vs Slovakia on?
The one-legged Euro 2020 play-off semi-final unfortunately saw Ireland drawn away from home, which means the game will take place at Tehelne pole in Bratislava.
When is the game on?
The game is on this Thursday, October 8, at 7.45pm.
What TV channel is Ireland vs Slovakia on?
Thankfully for Irish supporters, the game will be available on free-to-air TV rather than behind a paywall like the most recent Nations League matches.
The one-legged affair will air live on RTE 2 on Thursday, and their coverage starts at 7pm. The high-stakes showdown is also available on RTE Player.
For those who enjoy watching their Ireland games with a large satellite provider, the game is also available on Sky Sports Football.
What’s next for the winner?
Whoever comes out on top on Thursday night will greet Bosnia or Northern Ireland at next month’s play-off final.
Unfortunately, if Ireland do progress to the decider, they will once again have to play away from home — though a trip to Belfast would be handy.
Win that, and the Boys in Green have officially booked their spot at Euro 2020, which is now taking place in summer 2021.
