RTÉ Sport will broadcast the second game of the Republic of Ireland's Euro 2021 qualifier double-header, it has been confirmed today.

It means that both games will be shown live on RTÉ2 and RTE Player.

The first match is this Thursday as Vera Pauw's side take on Greece in Tallaght Stadium.

Coverage begins from 7pm as Peter Collins is joined by Karen Duggan and Megan Campbell, with Darragh Maloney and Lisa Fallon in the commentary box for the 7:30pm kick-off.

Then next Wednesday 11 March, there is an afternoon treat as Ireland travel to Montenegro for another vital game in the quest to qualify for the tournament.

Karen Duggan, Megan Campbell and Alan Cawley will be the guests for presenter Jacqui Hurley from 2:30pm.

Kick-off is 3pm, with Darragh and Lisa on commentary once more.

These will be the fourth and fifth of eight group games on the road to Euro 2021 in England. 

Ireland are currently second in Group I, with six points the target given there are two fixtures against the leaders Germany still to come.

The group winners and three best second-placed sides qualify automatically, with the other six runners-up playing off in October 2020 for the three remaining places.

Over 5,000 tickets for Thursday's game in Tallaght have alreadybeen sold 

The Group I encounter - which kicks off at 19:15 - could yet eclipse the record attendance of 5,328 set in last October's victory over Ukraine in the same venue.

Ireland manager Vera Pauw has urged supporters to turn up on the night to support the team. "We need the fans. I hope that everybody is coming because to get that support it pulls you through the difficult moments in the game.

"It is fantastic that tickets are selling well but need the fans to turn up on the night - that is very important. We had a great crowd and atmosphere at the Ukraine game, so it would be special to experience that on a night when we need to beat Greece."
