Ireland supporters have two long trips ahead of them to support the Boys in Green on their latest Nations League adventure.
Stephen Kenny's side have drawn Armenia and Ukraine in League C of the competition, two teams they have relative inexperience of playing.
However, a Celtic clash with Scotland will whet the appetite of sponsors and supporters alike, with games at the Aviva Stadium and Hampden Park set to be sold out.
On-the-pitch, Kenny will fancy his charges to overturn the Armenians home-and-away, with the Irish - then under Giovanni Trappatoni - winning both games against the minnows.
However, Ireland have never played Ukraine in the men's game, with Ireland's women having drawn the Eastern European outfit in their last European Championship qualifying campaign.
