Republic of Ireland continue their Nations League campaign against Finland this weekend

Ireland Finland

Republic of Ireland saved their skin in the dying stages of their opening Nations League clash, and will hope for a better showing against Finland this weekend.


Stephen Kenny’s first game in charge ended in a 1-1 stalemate thanks to Shane Duffy’s last-gasp headed equaliser.

The new boss will expect more from his side’s upcoming Nations League fixtures, starting with a clash with Finland at the Aviva Stadium.

The Scandinavian side were toppled 1-0 by Wales on home soil on Thursday evening, but proved they’re no pushovers after finishing second in their Euro 2020 qualifying group of six, ahead of Greece.

Ireland will hope to use the Nations League as a springboard for success with an eventual Euro 2020 play-off encounter with Slovakia coming up in October.

Our prediction: Republic of Ireland v Finland

No manager wants to lose any game, particularly if it’s their first game. Kenny avoided that fate thanks to Ireland’s late strike, but he will demand a better showing here.

Ireland boast a fresh attacking line-up with Adam Idah, Aaron Connolly and Callum O’Dowda leading the team against Bulgaria.

It’s an exciting trio, but may take some time to gel and flourish in the way it can. Until then, Ireland may need to settle for a few more indifferent results.

Our prediction: Republic of Ireland 1-1 Finland
