Derrick Williams goes in search of his first competitive start for the Republic of Ireland this evening against Switzerland.

The 26-year-old is part of the travelling contingent for the encounter, which takes place in Geneva tonight, kick-off 7.45pm.

Williams entered the action in the dying embers of the Euro 2020 qualifier against Georgia in Tbilisi on Saturday for his competitive debut, which ended 0-0.

The defender came on in the final moments of the encounter, replacing Aston Villa midfielder Conor Hourihane, and will be hoping to start tonight for his country.

The Republic have a good recent record against the Swiss, losing only two of the last 10 meetings, which includes a 1-1 draw against Vladimir Petković's side last month.

A win will ensure that Mick McCarthy's men hold on to top spot in Group D.

Good luck, Del!
