Ireland will face Australia tonight in a friendly at the almost sold-out Tallaght Stadium.

Vera Pauw’s team go into play after a series of seven defeats.

Today’s game is the last before next month’s World Cup qualification begins.

“Against Belgium we had good chances, chances and could have got something out of the game, we should have got something out of the game.

” The same with Denmark too Home. We were there until the last minute, also with a few chances.

“These are all teams that are significantly higher rated, so the performances were there, although the results on paper were not so.”

4,000 fans are allowed to enter the Tallaght Stadium for today’s game, but few tickets are still available for kick-off at 7 p.m.
