Ireland Squad To Fly Out To Copenhagen For Play Off

Written 1 week ago by Newsroom


The Republic of Ireland are preparing to fly out for Saturday’s World Cup play off first leg against Denmark.

The squad will head to Copenhagen following a training session at Abbottstown.

Jeff Hendrick is expected to be back in action after a scan on a glute issue came back clear.

It has been two years since Ireland beat Bosnia to qualify for Euro 2016.

Manager Martin O’Neill is hoping to build on the lessons learnt from that play off.

Meanwhile the Danish FA are warning Irish fans they will be turned away if they have the wrong tickets.

The FAI were given an allocation of just 2,300 seats, but many more Irish supporters are expected to travel.

Communications Director Jacob Wadlund says they will be on the look out for the green shirts in the Danish section.
