Stephen Kenny Eyes Positive Result Against Portugal

Nathan Collins could be set for a start.

Republic of Ireland manager Stephen Kenny believes his charges can get a positive result against Portugal tonight. 

The two sides clash at the Aviva Stadium, in what is Ireland's final home game of the World Cup qualifying campaign. 

Defender Nathan Collins could be in line to start with Andrew Omobamidele ruled out with an achilles problem.

Kenny says he is excited by the challenge that lies ahead:

We're at home, we've got a lot of good players ourselves.

Evolving as a team every game we play in front of our eyes.

We're really really excited about getting out on the pitch tonight and pitting ourselves against one of the best sides in world football. 

Kick off is at 7.45.
