Ireland face Portugal tonight and the Irish rugby team to be named this afternoon.

SOCCER

A full house of almost 52 thousand supporters will be at the Aviva Stadium tonight for the Republic of Ireland's penultimate World Cup qualifier against Portugal.

Leixlip's Nathan Collins is being tipped to start in defence with Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo the main threat for the visitors.

Ireland won't be going to the finals in Qatar, but it's a chance to finish the campaign on a high.

Kick off is at 7.45.

Elsewhere, a consortium led by former owner Andy Connolly is to take over Dundalk, with Peak 6 ending their ownership of the club.

Dundalk currently lie sixth in the League of Ireland Premier Division, 27 points behind champions Shamrock Rovers.

GAA

Last night's local GAA results:

2021 U23 Football C Championship
Leixlip 4-12 V Confey GAA 1-9

2021 U23 Football D Championship
St Kevin's 2-2 V St Edwards 2-17

RUGBY

The Irish team to face New Zealand on Saturday will be named by coach Andy Farrell this afternoon.

Iain Henderson could be in line for a start in the second row, but Farrell will stick with most of the side which beat Japan by 55 points last weekend.

Gavin Coombes is the only injury absentee.

GOLF

Padraig Harrington has made a decent start on day one of the Dubai Championship.

He is 4 under par through 15 holes, 3 shots off the early pace.

Jonathan Caldwell is also in the field.

Shane Lowry, Seamus Power and Graeme McDowell are in the field for the Houston Open on the PGA Tour.

CRICKET

Pakistan and Australia go head to head in the second T-20 World Cup semi final in Dubai later.

New Zealand await the winners in the final.

HORSE RACING
