Rovers pair Darragh Lenihan and Derrick Williams are both hoping to play a part for the Republic of Ireland against France tonight.

The Rovers duo are part of Martin O'Neill's group to face France in Paris later today (28th May), before tackling the USA in Dublin on Saturday, 2nd June 2018.

Lenihan and Williams both represented their country for the first time last weekend, coming up against a Celtic XI during Scott Brown's testimonial, which was played in front of around 55,000 fans at Celtic Park and finished 2-2.

And the pair could well be in for a tough evening against a star-studded French side, with Atletico Madrid hitman Antoine Griezmann, PSG's Kylian Mbappe and Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba all expected to feature for Didier Deschamps' side.

The clash takes place in the Stade de France, kick-off at 8pm.
