Republic of Ireland vs Luxembourg – World Cup qualifier: Live score, lineups and updates

Republic of Ireland vs Luxembourg: Stephen Kenny’s men aim to get off the mark in 2022 World Cup qualifiers after opening-game defeat to Serbia

Despite losing the 3-2 to Serbia in midweek in their opening 2022 World Cup qualifier, the Republic of Ireland at least managed to arrest a slump of seven games without a goal, a run that saw them lose home and away to Finland and resulted in their Euro 2020 qualifying dreams dashed at the final hurdle by Slovakia.

Aaron Connolly has returned to club side Brighton after playing 67 minutes against the Serbians following a recent return to first-team action. The forward appeared to be bothered by cramp and a calf issue when he came off.

This is Luxembourg’s first match of the campaign.
