SOCCER

Manchester City star Bernardo Silva is a doubt for tomorrow's World Cup qualifier between Portugal and the Republic of Ireland in Dublin.

He has a muscle injury.

Portugal fly to Ireland tonight, with Ruben Dias, Joao Cancelo and Diogo Jota all on yellow cards.

The trio would miss Sunday's showdown with Serbia if they get booked again.

Meanwhile, the Ireland Under 19's kick off their European Championship qualifying campaign this lunchtime.

They face Montenegro in Bulgaria, with kick off at 12.30pm.

There is a strong possibility Steven Gerrard could be the new Aston Villa manager.

The Liverpool legend is under contract at Rangers until 2024, but could be interested in replacing Dean Smith in Birmingham.

RUGBY

The IRFU say they won't be commenting on the specifics around the war of words between Anthony Eddy and current and past women's rugby players.

Director of women's and sevens rugby Eddy came under criticism from current hooker Cliodhna Moloney and former captain Claire Molloy, for his rationalizations around the current state of the women's game.

Ireland recently failed to qualify for the 15's World Cup.

Elsewhere, Hugo Keenan says an increased number of offloads in Ireland's attacking game against Japan came naturally.

The 60-5 win over Japan has raised expectations around this Saturday's match against New Zealand in Dublin.

Full-back Keenan says Ireland just got into a groove:
