The Republic of Ireland Under-19 squad have learned their fate for next March's European Under-19 Championship Elite qualifying round campaign as well as the 2020 European Under-19 Championship qualifying tournament.

Tom Mohan's side take on Russia, Azerbaijan and Romania in Russia next spring, having topped their qualifying group ahead of the Netherlands.

The group winners winners will qualify to join hosts Armenia in the finals from 14 to 27 July next year.

Ireland will then face Austria, Switzerland and Gibraltar in their 2020 European Under-19 Championship qualifying campaign.

Like Mick McCarthy’s senior team, Mohan’s side have been grouped with Switzerland and Gibraltar and will fancy their chances of making it through to the elite round.

The top two in every group, along with the third-placed team with the best record against the leading pair, will follow top seeds Portugal into the elite round in spring 2020.

The seven elite round group winners will join hosts Northern Ireland in that July's finals.

The tournament will be held in Northern Ireland and will act as Europe's qualifier for the 2021 FIFA U-20 World Cup.

The draws were made by John Delaney, chairman of the UEFA Youth and Amateur Football Committee, and England Under-19 player Ellery Balcombe, who received the Fair Play prize on behalf of last season's England team.
