Sarpreet Singh is set to start for New Zealand tonight in the friendly match against the Republic of Ireland. The match will take place at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin and will be live on Sky Sports Football from 7.30 pm.
Ireland’s focus will be on next Monday’s clash with Denmark at the same venue, where a win will secure them a place at Euro 2020. The game will still prove a stiff test for the All Whites especially as they themselves are fielding up to three debutants.
Joe Bell, is expected start in midfield behind Sarpreet Singh and Ryan Thomas, with Storm Roux, Michael Boxall and Liberato Cacace likely to join captain Winston Reid at the back, in front of Stefan Marinovic in goal, based on how the team has been lining up in training.
