We kick-off with Hollywood star and proud Dubliner, Colm Meaney, and comedian and impressionist Mario Rosenstock, while teacher and model Sarah Jane Dunne talks about becoming the first traveller to reach the finals of Miss Ireland. Also: Ryan Sheridan performs the song Brendan O’Carroll personally commissioned for Mrs. Brown’s Boys D’Movie.

Fifa World Cup 2014, RTÉ Two, 8.30pm

Endgame approaches in what has been a dazzling tournament and today sees the remaining two Quarter Finals taking place. World power Argentina take the battle to an impressive Belgium, who have one of the best squads of the tournament (kick-off 5.00). Later, the much-fancied Dutch take on the smallest country left in the finals, Costa Rica - who have been the real revelation of the finals (kick-off at 9.00pm).  

Costa Rica take on The Netherlands tonight at 9.00pm on RTÉ Two

Tour de France Beo 2014, TG4, 11.05am
