The Republic of Ireland know where and when they will be in action for the 2020-21 Nations League campaign.

Stephen Kenny's first competitive fixtures as Republic of Ireland senior manager will get underway in early September in Sofia following Tuesday's draw in Amsterdam.

The Republic of Ireland's Nations League campaign will begin away to Bulgaria on September 3rd and just three days after that trip to Sofia, Finland will visit the Aviva Stadium.

On Saturday, October 10th Wales will again visit Dublin, then the following Tuesday there will be a trip to Finland for Stephen Kenny's side.

The group concludes in November. Kenny and his team will be hoping Friday the 13th isn't ominous for the return trip to Cardiff.

The final game of the Nations League is a home tie on Monday, November 16th when Bulgaria will be the visitors at the Aviva Stadium.

Decent Draw

Avoiding some bigger names such as Russia, Serbia, and the Czech Republic, will be seen as a positive due to the importance of the Nations League when it comes to qualifying for major tournaments.

Topping the Nations League group would help Kenny's men if a potential play-off was needed for the World Cup in 2022.

Elsewhere Northern Ireland were drawn alongside Austria, Norway and Romania.

Scotland are also in League B. they are in Pot two with  Slovakia, Israel and the Czech Republic.

Meanwhile, England have a tough draw, with Belgium, Iceland and Ireland's regular opponents Denmark in League A.
