Irish trio on Eurosport

5 September 2014

Sweeney, Griffin & Long take on Germany

Pierce Sweeney, Shane Griffin and Sean Long could all be in international action live on Eurosport on Friday evening.

The trio have been selected in Ireland's squad for a UEFA U21 qualifier with Germany - and coverage starts at 4.45pm on British Eurosport 2.

The game will take place in Halle, a couple of hours south east of Berlin - with kick off set at 5pm.

Ireland currently sit fourth in their qualifying group - four points off second place. The ten group winners and four runners-up with the best record against the teams first, third, fourth and fifth in their sections advance to the play-offs. The tournament takes place in the Czech Republic in 2015.

Elsewhere on Friday, Icelanders Sammi Fridjonsson, Sindri Scheving and Tomas Urbancic take on Northern Ireland U19s.

This weekend will see midfielder Oliver Norwood start his qualifying campaign with Northern Ireland, taking on Hungary in Budapest, whilst Alex Pearce's Ireland take on Georgia in Tbilisi.
