    IRELAND IN THE SUN

    Good evening and welcome to Dublin for SunSport's live coverage of the World Cup Qualifier between the Republic of Ireland and Portugal.

    The Boys in Green's hopes of qualifying for next year's finals may be non-existent, but their enthusiasm cannot be faulted.

    More than 50,000 are expected inside the Aviva Stadium tonight as Stephen Kenny's men face the prospect of a third consecutive win for the first time in five years.

    Of course, Portugal will present a much fiercer proposition than the beaten Azerbaijan and Qatar before them, but it's only two months since Ireland pushed the Selecao all the way in the Algarve.
