The Republic of Ireland have been drawn to face Switzerland and Denmark in the Euro 2020 qualifiers.

Mick McCarthy's side was drawn in Ground D, where they will also face Georgia and Gibraltar.

The Euros in 2020 will celebrate the 60th anniversary of UEFA's most prestigious competition, and uniquely, 12 cities, including Dublin, will share hosting duties.
