In the latest soccer fixtures, Ireland have some very challenging trips abroad. With friendlies and Euro 2008 qualifiers coming up, the Irish fans will be enjoying some exotic holidays as they follow the team.
First up, Ireland will be taking on Denmark in Aarhus on August the 22nd. This is sure to be an entertaining match, as both teams will be experimenting before resuming Euro 2008 qualifiers. This is the first international match for the Irish team since May and is a great opportunity for manager Steve Staunton to perhaps bring some fresh faces into the squad.
Back to competative matches, Ireland travel to Bratislava to face Slovakia in the Euro 2008 Group D qualifiers. The last time the two teams met, Ireland managed a 1 – 0 win.
They will be hoping to build on this success on Saturday September the 8th, and move one step closer to qualification for Euro 2008 in Austria and Switzerland.
After the match in Slovakia, Ireland will hop across the border to take on the Czech Republic. The Sparta Prague Stadium will be packed as two of the favourites to progress from the Euro 2008 Group D qualifiers face off.
Last time the two team met, it was a hard fought 1 – 1 draw. Without the home advantage, Ireland will no doubt he happy with another draw against the skilled Czech attack.
You can join the Irish fans in Prague on Wednesday September the 12th.
On November the 17th, there is a match slightly closer to home, as Ireland travel to the beautiful Millenium Stadium in Wales for the last Euro 2008 qualifier.
The stadium is sure to be packed as, hopefully, Ireland secure their place among the qualifiers for Euro 2008.
