THE REPUBLIC OF IRELAND will not be seeded for Sunday’s draw for the play-offs for Euro 2016.
That’s because the four seeded sides going into the hat after tonight’s last series of qualifiers are Ukraine, Sweden, Bosnia and Hungary.
Ireland will draw one of those sides, with Denmark, Norway and Slovenia also unseeded.
Uefa will confirm seedings on Wednesday.
Turkey’s 1-0 win over Iceland, courtesy of Selcuk Inan’s 89th minute free-kick in Istanbul, sealed the automatic spot for the best third placed side, which meant Hungary dropped into the play-offs.
Killybegs native Seamus Coleman (pictured above) was part of Martin O’Neill’s side that lost 2-1 to Poland in Warsaw on Sunday. Shay Given was taken off with a knee injury in Thursday’s 1-0 win over Germany.
The draw for the four ties on Sunday from 10:20am and takes place at the House of European Football in Nyon, Switzerland.
The first legs take place from November 12-14, with the second legs on November 15-17. Seeded teams are not guaranteed to play their second leg at home.
