The Republic of Ireland will host games next year as part of the qualifying for the 2021 UEFA Under-19 championships.

The top two in each group and the third-placed team with the best record against the leading pair in their section join top seeds Portugal in the elite round in spring 2021, which will produce Romania's seven finals opponents in the final tournament.

Tom Mohan's side have been drawn in Group 7 and will take on Poland, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Estonia. 

The Irish matches will take place on 11, 14 and 17 November. 

Venues for all group games will be announced in due course.

Ireland also discovered their opponents in round one of the new Nations League-style UEFA European Under-19 2020-2022 Championship. They face the Netherlands, Turkey and Croatia in Group A1 in Turkey. The fixtures will also take place in November.

The Republic of Ireland Under-17 team will head to Scotland for the Elite Round of qualifiers to the 2020 UEFA Under-17 Championship.

Colin O'Brien’s team will face Scotland, Slovakia and the Czech Republic in March as they look to secure a fourth consecutive qualification to the finals.

The draw, hosted in Nyon, was also made for the 2021 UEFA Under-17 Qualifying round with Ireland to host Slovakia, Northern Ireland and Estonia next October.
