Team news

Live on Rte shortly ..
Republic of Ireland v Switzerland (19:45 BST)
No major surprises in the Republic of Ireland team. Three Sheffield United players - Enda Stevens, Callum Robinson and David McGoldrick start.
Matt Doherty is injured so there was no debate around Seamus Coleman's place today.
Jeff Hendrick wins his 50th cap in midfield.
Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka and Newcastle defender Fabian Schar start for Switzerland. Xherdan Shaqiri made him unavailable for this game so he can focus on his Liverpool career.

We're a bit better after going to a back five after 30ish minutes. We were taking on water before that.

Under serious pressure in the 2nd half. No idea how we haven't conceded.

Stole that point. Don't understand why we went back to the back four in the second half when the back five towards the end of first half was working.

Was watching on the RTE player and of course it conked out for three minutes during which the Swiss goal was scored. Fackin useless articles.
Only way we could've been more inviting is for a red carpet to be laid out. And maybe some confetti.
