Ireland vs France LIVE: Brighton’s Ferguson starts in shock bid against Mbappe – kick-off and team news


The Republic of Ireland will face a daunting task as they begin their Euro 2024 qualification campaign against France tonight. The Irish team secured a 3-2 victory over Latvia in a friendly match on home soil ahead of their bid to reach the Euros for only the fourth time in their history. However, they will face a tough test against World Cup finalists France, who recently defeated the Netherlands 4-0 in Paris, with Kylian Mbappe scoring twice on his first appearance as captain.

The Euro 2024 qualifier between Republic of Ireland and France will take place on Monday, March 27 at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin. The game will be broadcast live on Viaplay Sports at 7:45pm. Fans can subscribe to Viaplay for £14.99 per month and watch the game on their TV or website.

Dara O’Shea, a player for the Republic of Ireland, said that games like this are what the players relish and look forward to. He added that every game is an opportunity, but when you come up against a side like France, who played in a World Cup final recently, it’s a massive opportunity for the Irish team. O’Shea also said that they want to write their own history and put in a good performance to do the country proud.

Republic of Ireland: Bazunu, N Collins, Egan, O’Shea, Coleman, Molumby, Cullen, Doherty, Knight, Ogbene, Ferguson
