Mick McCarthy says that the Republic of Ireland won't be getting ahead of themselves after this morning's Euro 2020 play-off draw.

It was confirmed that should the Boys in Green overcome Slovakia in March's semi-final, that they'll face an away trip to Bosnia or Belfast five days later.

Qualification would see them playing two games in Dublin in next summer's finals.

The Irish manager is confident that his team can get the job done, but he warned that they have to perform like they did in the draw with Denmark on Monday night.

"The only game that matters to us now is Slovakia," said McCarthy after attending the draw in Nyon.

"If we win the first game against Slovakia then I will fancy our chances anywhere else. We will have our analysis done on all three teams but our focus is on Slovakia first and getting ready for them in the New Year.

"We know what we have to do, we have to go there and win the game. Home advantage is just that but if we play as well as we did against Denmark then I will settle for that. We set the bar high on Monday night and that is the standard we will have to play at to win two games."

Elsewhere, it seems likely that Bratislava will be the venue for the game against Slovakia on 26 March.

The FAI met with the Slovakian football authorities today, with the hosts intimating that the clash would be hosted at the Tehelné pole, which has a capacity of just over 22,000.

Irish supporters are guaranteed a 5% allocation of tickets, but the FAI confirmed in a statement this afternoon that they're looking to negotiate more than that amount.
