England manager Roy Hodgson says he’ll only get a real gauge of how good his team are in upcoming friendlies against high-profile countries. They finished a straight-forward Euro 2016 qualifying campaign by winning 3-nil in Lithuania – meaning they ended with 10 victories from 10. England face France and Spain in friendlies next month and Hodgson feels he’ll learn a lot from those games [audio_player src=”http://media.radiokerry.ie/mediamanager/embed/audio/46920/medium/”] Also last night Russia and Slovakia both progressed as automatic qualifiers while Ukraine, Sweden and Slovenia secured their places in Sunday’s play-off draw. The final round of qualifiers take place tonight, with the Republic of Ireland needing an unlikely combination of results in order to be seeded for the upcoming play-off draw. Martin O’Neill’s side require wins for Croatia and Cyprus, while they also need Italy to prevent Norway from winning and for a draw between Turkey and Iceland. Wales round-off their successful qualification campaign tonight with the visit of Group B minnows Andorra. In Group A, the Netherlands need to beat the Czech Republic, and hope Iceland do them a favour in Turkey if they’re to secure a playoff spot. The Dutch preparations for that game have been tempered with news of a bust-up between Robin Van Persie and Memphis Depay. The Republic of Ireland’s Under-21’s put their 100-per cent start to Group 2 of their Euro qualifiers on the line this afternoon. Noel King’s side take on Italy in Vicenza, where kick off is at 4, Irish time. Ballymac Galaxy and Castleisland B have drawn 2-2 in Denny Division 1B. Pa McCarthy & Luke Ward were on target for Ballymac Galaxy , with Danny Feehan netting twice for Castleisland. Tonight in Premier A Listowel Celtic take on St Brendans Park in Mounthawk Park at 7.15.
