Tomorrow's Euro 2021 qualifier is about about the result for the Republic of Ireland, according to Vera Pauw.

The former Netherlands and Scotland manager will be in the dugout for the Girls in Green for the first time when they face second seeds Ukraine at Tallaght Stadium.

She was appointed last month, the day after interim-manager Tom O'Connor guided Ireland to victory in their opening qualifier against Montenegro.

With Ukraine having already conceded sixteen goals in two games against group favourites Germany, Pauw has insisted that she doesn't yet mind whether the team plays attractive football.

"It's all related to results," she said.

"If we have a friendly tournament, then you can try out a few things, but it's just about getting a result."

That victory over Montenegro proved to be a frustrating evening for the hosts at Tallaght, and with chances hard to come by they needed a late Katie McCabe penalty to make things comfortable.

Pauw complimented the spirit of the panel, but says they will need to be more efficient if they want to qualify for a first ever major finals.

"We've been working on more purposeful possession with the ball, so that our passes have a meaning," she confirmed.

"That leads to more forward pressure."

There was some good news for the new manager when she was able to name Manchester City defender Megan Campbell in the squad, but she said that all players will be given a chance to prove their fitness in Monday's final training session before she decides on her starting XI.

"We have one or two doubts still, as to whether players will be fit for the full game, or not. The choice will be made after the last training session, when all players will be going full speed, 100%."
