THE ROAD TO Qatar starts here.

Stephen Kenny’s Ireland side begin their 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign tonight, a trip to Belgrade to take on Serbia.

It’s a familiar venue for Ireland, they began their last World Cup qualifying run in the same city when it finished 2-2 after Jeff Hendrick put Martin O’Neill’s side ahead early on before two second-half Serbian goals meant Daryl Murphy was required to rescue Ireland with his late header.

2020 was a difficult one on the international front for Ireland as the Kenny reign began with no wins from eight games and just the one goal scored.

He’ll hope for better fortunes despite a build-up disrupted by injury as a big week commences with tonight’s opening qualifier followed by Saturday’s tie at home to Luxembourg.

But we want to know what result you think is most likely tonight?
