UEFA has confirmed that they will hold a draw to determine which teams will be at home in the play-off finals for Euro 2020.

The Republic of Ireland will travel to Slovakia for a one-leg semi-final next March with the winners facing either Northern Ireland or Bosnia and Herzegovina for a place at the finals.

The draw will take place on Friday morning.

THE PLAY-OFF TEAMS

REPUBLIC OF IRELAND

Mick McCarthy’s side narrowly missed out on automatic qualification after failing to beat Denmark in their final group game and a goal-shy side will likely need to find more firepower to advance from the play-offs.

NORTHERN IRELAND

A 6-1 defeat in Germany was hardly the ideal way to round off a qualifying campaign and manager Michael O’Neill has to combine his international duties with his new club job at Stoke before the play-offs.
