The Republic of Ireland's crunch Under-21 European Championship qualifiers against Iceland and Luxembourg have been pushed back to mid-November at the request of UEFA. 

Due to the Iceland v Italy game being postponed during the previous international window, both sides will play their final three qualifiers next month.

Jim Crawford's side will now face Iceland at Tallaght Stadium on Sunday, 15 November.

The Ireland team will then travel to Luxembourg for the final Group 1 qualifier in Beggen on Wednesday, 18 November.

Italy lead Ireland at the top of the group on goal difference after recording a 2-0 victory when the sides met in Pisa earlier this month.
