Both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland discovered their fates today in terms of overcoming the final hurdle on the road to Russia.

Following a historic win in Wales last Monday Martin O’Neill’s men found out today that will play Denmark in the play offs in the hope of securing passage to Russia.

The draw was also pretty favourable to the boy’s in green as they will travel to Copenhagen in the first leg before returning to Dublin three days later to face off in the Aviva stadium in a potentially winner takes all clash.

Meanwhile Northern Ireland were rewarded with a final showdown with Switzerland after they finished runners up to Germany in their group.

Michael O’Neil’s men will host the Swiss in Windsor Park in the first leg before traveling to Basel three days later.

In the final two play off games Croatia will play Greece, whilst four time World Cup winners Italy will have a tough encounter with Sweden.

Fifa have confirmed the First legs will be played between November 9 and 11, whilst the second legs will be played between November 12 and 14.
