The last meeting between Wales and Ireland, last month, ended in a goalless draw but fans will be hoping for a more exciting affair this afternoon.
Wales star Gareth Bale sat out the friendly with the United States this week but is reportedly ready to start this afternoon having taken part in a vigorous training session with the national side.
The Welsh camp have reported that he’s the fittest he’s been for years, so all eyes will be on the Tottenham striker.
But the Dragons can also boast a fully-fit squad for this meeting in Cardiff.
The Republic of Ireland however have made four call ups following a bout of injuries.
Jason Knight, Josh Cullen, Darragh Lenihan and Ciaran Clark have been included, while captain Seamus Coleman, John Egan and Harry Arter have all returned to their clubs for treatment.
After their mid-week loss to England, Alan Browne tested positive for coronavirus so will have to sit out for a period of isolation.
Stephen Kenny has insisted that his players have the right mentality, despite their recent loss, and will be looking to end their seven-match winless run.
In the other dugout, there will be no Ryan Giggs, but instead caretake manager Robert Page will take the reins.
Stick with us as we bring you all the action from Cardiff.
