International Preview: October 2019

9 October 2019

Alan Browne and Sean Maguire are once again away with Republic of Ireland this month.

Browne featured in both games during the last International break in September, scoring his first senior goal his first country in the 3-1 win over Bulgaria in Dublin.

Maguire was called up to that squad too but had to withdraw due to an eye injury and he will be hoping to feature this time around with two big games coming up for Mick McCarthy's side.

Republic of Ireland face trips to Georgia and Switzerland as they look to build on their impressive form in Euro 2020 qualifying so far.

The boys in green currently sit top of group D and will be looking for positive results in their upcoming away games before hosting Denmark in November.

Ireland take on Georgia on Saturday afternoon, before travelling to Switzerland for their game on Tuesday night.

Speaking to the media in Ireland ahead of the games, Browne said: "I think so far we’ve given ourselves a really good opportunity. This is a massive week for us. We need a good result against Georgia and hopefully go into the Switzerland game with momentum.

"As a group we never stop believing in ourselves, we keep fighting until the end.”

Both players will then return to Springfields later that week to prepare for North End's trip to Reading on Saturday 19th October.
