Glenn Whelan will captain the Republic of Ireland tonight, on the occasion of his 85th and final international appearance.
Northern Ireland provide the opposition at the Aviva, and a chance for Martin O’Neill to road test his troops ahead of Monday’s Nations League trip to Denmark.
The two teams have shown a united front in the build up to the match.
O’Neill is confident the North South rivalry won’t boil over on the pitch.
The action is underway at 7:45 pm.
