The Republic of Ireland under-21’s have secured at least a playoff spot for next year’s European Championships, without kicking a ball.

Sweden and Group F leaders Italy played out a 1-1 draw in Helsingborg this evening.

That result means Ireland can’t be caught by the Swedes in second, and go to Italy next Tuesday with a chance to top the group.

Balla's Luke McNicholas is part of the Irish squad along with Tubbercurry's Liam Kerrigan.
