Murphy looking to make final step to EURO 2016 whilst Maitland-Niles adds to his collection of England caps

Daryl Murphy will look to fire the Republic of Ireland into the European Championships tonight as they face Bosnia and Herzegovina in the second leg of their Play-Off tie.

The striker played the full 90 minutes in the first leg on Friday evening, as the Irish drew 1-1 at the Belino Polje stadium, ahead of tonight's decider in Dublin.

Elsewhere, winger Ainsley Maitland-Niles played just over an hour for the England U19 side at Manchester City’s Academy Stadium as they romped to a 5-1 victory over Japan.

Fellow youngster, Josh Yorwerth, who is currently on-loan at Crawley, played for the Wales U21 side as they scored a last-minute winner to beat Armenia and maintain their unbeaten start to European Championship qualification.

Australian, Tommy Oar was an unused substitute as the Socceroos comfortably dispatched Kyrgyzstan 3-0. He has another chance to add to his 27 caps tomorrow morning, as they face Bangladesh.
