Stephen Kennys side recorded a victory over Andorra last week and will be looking to contain that winning form.

Ireland travelled to Budapest on Sunday, June 6 from their training camp base in Girona, Spain for the match at the Szusza Ferenc Stadium on Tuesday, June 8, with kick-off at 7pm (8pm CET).  Stephen Kenny's Ireland side recorded a 4-1 victory in their last match against Andorra as goals from Troy Parrott (2), Jason Knight and Daryl Horgan cancelled out Marc Iles' opener at the Estadi Nacional. The match will be played in front of a full crowd in Budapest and it will be the final match for the Hungarians before the start of the European Championships. Ireland will be planning with out Seamus Coleman who has returned home having been unable to recover from a hamstring injury.

Ireland manager Stephen Kenny will be hoping his side can make it back to back wins and hand him his 2nd victory since taking over the role.

I'm expecting a tough match against the Hungarians, they're participating in the European Championships, it will be a great test for us.

I’m glad the fans can get back to the stands as this game is actually about them. We can finally get back the passion that I missed so much already and I'm sure the players will be equally as excited to play in front of any support.
