The Republic of Ireland continue their World Cup Qualifier campaign in Azerbaijan

SOCCER

Republic of Ireland manager Stephen Kenny says his side need to start turning draws into wins - starting this evening.

They’re in Baku to face Azerbaijan in their latest World Cup qualifier.

Kenny will make a late call on the fitness of both Adam Idah and Jason Knight, both of whom had a fever earlier in the week.

Kick-off at the Olympic Stadium is at 5pm, Irish time.

Elsewhere in Group A this evening, Luxembourg play host to Serbia from 7.45.

Under-21 manager Jim Crawford says he’s still unsure what players he’ll be able to take to Montenegro.

His side beat Luxembourg 2-nil in Tallaght yesterday evening to preserve their unbeaten start to Euro qualifying.

But Montenegro is on the UK and Germany’s ‘red’ travel list, impacting what players Crawford can select.
