As had been hoped, Ireland will be among the second seeds for the draw for the Euro 2016 qualifying campaign, UEFA has announced.

Currently ranked as the 19th country in the European rankings, Martin O’Neill will be pleased that Ireland are in the second pot rather than the third when the draw takes place on February 23rd.

England will be in pot one for the draw, joining Spain, Germany, Italy, Holland, Portugal, Greece, Russia and Bosnia-Herzegovina as the top seeds.

There will be eight groups of six teams and a ninth group of five teams with 23 sides to join hosts France in the final tournament.

The seedings, decided by UEFA's coefficient system which is different to FIFA's world ranking, will see Scotland and Wales in the pot of the fourth seeds, and Northern Ireland in the pot of fifth seeds.

The draw will take place in Nice on February 23
