Ireland set for away Euro 2020 play-off final if they beat Slovakia
Mick McCarthy’s side will face either Bosnia or Northern Ireland, provided they win their semi-final.

IT HAS BEEN confirmed that Ireland will compete away from home in the play-off final if they win their away semi-final against Slovakia, following today’s draw in Nyon.

After failing to beat Denmark on Monday, Mick McCarthy’s side missed out on automatic qualification from their group for Euro 2020.

They must now play Slovakia away from home on 26 March in a Nations League play-off semi-final, before a potential final against either Bosnia or Northern Ireland on 31 March.

Slovakia have until 20 December to confirm the venue for the match against Ireland, with Bratislava or Trnava the most likely locations.

The details in relation to the other play-off semi-finals were also confirmed today (see below), with these games set to determine which four teams will join the 20 already confirmed for this summer’s tournament.
