Kenny favours McClean over Connolly for Crunch Play-Off

Stephen Kenny has named his Starting XI for Ireland’s crucial Euro 2020 Play Off game.

The Boys in Green travel to Bratislava off the back of a disappointing couple of Nations League results but the mood in the camp is optimistic following the start of the Premier League team.

Kenny’s back 4 and goalkeeper was relatively straight forward but his big decisions have come in midfield and the forward line.

With plenty of options in terms of personal and set up, Kenny has gone with his usual 4-3-3.

The team is as follows:


Doherty, Duffy, Egan, Stevens

Hendrick, McCarthy, Hourihane

Robinson, McGoldrick, McClean
