Over in Ireland reserve-team regular Darragh Lenihan plays the first of two friendlies this week against the Czech Republic Under-19 squad this evening.

Ireland's Under-19s take on their Czech counterparts at Flancare Park, Longford tonight, before a second game on Thursday in Athlone.

Jack O'Connell will be hoping to earn his fourth cap for England's Under-19s when they face Denmark.

Noel Blake's squad take on the Danes at Doncaster's Keepmoat Stadium and O'Connell, who is currently on loan with League Two side York City, is expected to play.
