Mick McCarthy admits he will be nervous when the Republic of Ireland kicks off tonight's Euro 2020 qualifier against Georgia at the Aviva Stadium.

It will be the 60 year old's first game in charge in Dublin since his first stint as manager ended in 2002.

Supporters are said to be planning to throw tennis balls onto pitch in protest over the John Delaney controversy.

==================
UEFA have opened disciplinary proceedings against Montenegro.

Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling and Tottenham's Danny Rose were among those who were racially abused during England's 5-1 win last night.

European football's governing body have charged Montenegro with "racist behaviour".

Cristiano Ronaldo is a doubt for the Champions League quarter finals.

The Portugal captain was forced off in the first half of their Group B 1 all draw with Serbia with a hamstring injury.

His club Juventus travel to Ajax for the first leg of their quarter final in a fortnight's time.

============
Ronan O'Gara says reports he is close to signing a deal to join the France coaching staff are wide of the mark.

The former Ireland number-10 has been rumoured to be joining the backroom team of head coach Jacques Brunel on a temporary basis for the duration of the World Cup.

O'Gara is currently backs coach with Super Rugby side Crusaders in New Zealand.

Ulster's Craig Gilroy and Will Addison have been ruled out of Saturday's Champions Cup quarter final against Leinster at the Aviva Stadium.

Both Irish internationals will miss the game due to back injuries.
