Over 5,000 tickets gone for Ireland WNT v Greece

The Group I encounter - which kicks off at 19:15 - could yet eclipse the record attendance of 5,328 set in last October's victory over Ukraine in the same venue.

Ireland manager Vera Pauw has urged supporters to turn up on the night to support the team. "We need the fans. I hope that everybody is coming because to get that support it pulls you through the difficult moments in the game.

"It is fantastic that tickets are selling well but need the fans to turn up on the night - that is very important. We had a great crowd and atmosphere at the Ukraine game, so it would be special to experience that on a night when we need to beat Greece."

Tickets are still available online via www.fai.ie/tickets and Ticketmaster vans will be on site ahead of kick-off, but supporters are encouraged to secure their tickets to avoid disappointment and to arrive early to enjoy the pre-match atmosphere.

Pauw's team are unbeaten after three games and they will look to wrap up a home victory when they take on Greece on Thursday night.

In team news, midfielders Megan Connolly (shoulder) and Jessica Ziu (groin) have been ruled out of the game, while English-born forward Nicole Douglas has been training with the squad as she awaits international clearance from FIFA.
