Welcome to this evening's coverage of the much anticipated Qatar v Republic of Ireland friendly. Okay maybe not so anticipated but it is Ireland's last game for six months so its time to fill our boots with international football. I won't talk up an Ireland win or some goals but that would be nice wouldn't it. The game kicks off in Hungary at 7.45pm.
