Who are Ireland playing against?

Kenny’s side will play Armenia in the opening game of their UEFA Nations League campaign at the Republic Stadium in Yerevan.

Armenia finished fourth in their 2022 World Cup qualifying group, accumulating 12 points over 10 games, as they finished ahead of Iceland and Liechtenstein.

However, Joaquín Caparrós’ team are ranked 92nd in the Fifa world rankings and come into this match on the back of a 9-0 defeat to Norway in March. Ireland, who are yet to win a match in the Nations League, may never have a better chance to end that unwanted run.

The Boys in Green played Armenia twice during the EURO 2012 qualification campaign and won on both occasions. The match is the first of four in 11 days for Kenny’s side in the group, with Scotland and Ukraine to come.

Ireland’s form going into the match against Armenia.

Kenny’s side are on a seven-game unbeaten run which saw the Boys in Green go toe-to-toe with Portugal, Belgium, and Serbia.

The former Dundalk boss will be delighted to see his team keep four clean sheets in the past seven games.

In Ireland’s last outing, Troy Parrott’s 96th-minute strike against Lithuania was the difference between the sides.

Ireland will be hoping to continue their rich run of form during the Nations League matches, and most importantly, ahead of their Euro 2024 qualification campaign.
