Irish hopes for Lenihan, Hoban and Byrne

6 September 2016

Rovers could have three players on international duty this evening when the Republic of Ireland Under-21s face Serbia.

Darragh Lenihan, Tommie Hoban and Jack Byrne are all with the Irish squad for their penultimate UEFA qualifier.

Friday night's late win over Slovenia has kept Ireland in the hunt for a place in the play-off stage of the competition, but they need another victory tonight in Novi Sad to maintain that chance.

Italy are all but guaranteed to finish as Group 2 winners, but Ireland, Serbia and Slovenia all could finish as runners-up.

Ireland are currently three points behind 2nd placed Slovenia and two points behind this evening's opponents Serbia who they also face in their final round of fixtures next month.

The group winners qualify straight to next summer's finals in Poland, whilst the four group runners-up with the best record will advance to the play-offs in November.
