Teenager Gavin Bazunu will make his Ireland debut in tonight's World Cup qualifier against Luxembourg at the Aviva Stadium.

The 19-year-old Rochdale goalkeeper, on loan from Manchester City, has been picked in place of Mark Travers who played on Wednesday night in Serbia.

James Collins also starts, replacing Aaron Connolly up front, following the Brighton striker's return to his club as a result of an impact injury picked up in Belgrade. Callum Robinson will join the big Luton man in the attack.

Jason Knight is the third and final change made by manager Stephen Kenny from the side that lost 3-2 midweek.

The Derby County captain comes into the midfield in place of Jayson Molumby, while Josh Cullen and Alan Browne keep their places in the middle of the park having impressed in Serbia, with the latter scoring Ireland's first goal in eight games to open the scoring.

Seamus Coleman and Matt Doherty will once again start in the same line-up, while Shane Duffy must make do with a place on the bench.

Dara O'Shea retains his place in the centre of defence and should play in the middle of the three with Coleman on his right and Ciaran Clark on the left. Enda Stevens and Doherty will again play a wing-back role on their respective flanks.
