Tallaght to host Dutch friendly

THE FAI have confirmed that Tallaght Stadium, home of Shamrock Rovers, will host an U21 friendly against Holland next month.

Noel King's side will face the Dutch on Wednesday February 6 at 1.0pm, on the same day as the senior friendly against Poland, as part of the preparations for the new European Championship qualifiers.

Doolin will announce his squad for the game next week but the U21 boss expects to be without new Hull CIty signing Robbie Brady due to his involvement with the senior squad. Birmingham City man Callum Reilly is being considered for an U21 call up after an impressive run of form in the Championship.

And Paul Doolin's U19 side will get a rare chance to play on home soil when they face the Czech Republic in two friendlies.

The U19s host the Czechs at Flancare Park on Tuesday February 5 and on Thursday February 7 a friendly goes ahead in Athlone.
