The Republic of Ireland round off their international season with a friendly against the United States Men’s National Team.

The Republic of Ireland round off their international season with a friendly against the United States Men’s National Team.

Unfortunately this will be a fixture tinged with disappointment for both teams, as both have failed to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup which kicks off in Russia just two weeks on from this game.

The Republic’s campaign ended in unheralded disarray. The team reached a play-off via a dramatic smash-and-grab victory against Wales in Cardiff, before a 5-1 obliteration at home by a rampant Christian Eriksen-led Danish team.

The USMNT’s disappointment was even greater, having failed to claim any of the top four places in The Hex, the six-team round-robin play-off which determines qualifiers from CONCACAF. A lame 2-1 defeat at the hands of bottom place Trinidad and Tobago sealed their fate in the last round of qualification games.

Rising star Christian Pulisic of Borussia Dortmund will be hoping to spearhead a rebuild of US’s squad and morale, while the Republic will be looking to blood new players like Declan Rice and Seani Maguire ahead of their riveting UEFA Nations League campaign.
