Republic of Ireland vs Belgium: International Friendlies Live Stream, Form Guide, Head to Head, Schedule, Fixture and Probable Lineups

Belgium, set to compete in Euro 2024, kick off their preparations for the upcoming tournament with a match against the Republic of Ireland in Dublin on Saturday. While Belgium gears up for the Euros at the Aviva Stadium, their hosts, the Republic of Ireland, are facing challenges, not having a permanent manager and struggling in recent performances during qualifying. Stephen Kenny’s departure from his role as the Republic of Ireland boss after a three-and-a-half-year tenure was no surprise last November, ending with a disappointing home draw against New Zealand.

The Republic has only managed to win two out of their last nine matches, both against Gibraltar. They finished 12 points behind the top two teams in their European Championship qualifying group and failed to secure a playoff place in the previous UEFA Nations League. Now entering the post-Kenny era, the Republic of Ireland will play two home friendlies, starting with a tough test against Belgium followed by Switzerland three days later. In contrast, Belgium is considered a contender for Euro 2024. Ahead of a tough game against England at Wembley next week, Belgium faces the Republic of Ireland.

Belgium, revived under new coach Domenico Tedesco after exiting the 2022 World Cup in the group stage, secured their place in the Euros by topping their qualifying group with six wins and two draws from eight matches. With fresh and new talents like Jeremy Doku, Arthur Vermeeren, and Johan Bakayoko joining established stars like Romelu Lukaku, Kevin De Bruyne hopes are high for Belgium to finally clinch a major trophy, a feat that even the their ‘golden generation’ couldn’t achieve, despite several close calls.
