Ireland have been drawn to face Denmark and Wales in Group 4 of the UEFA Nations League B.

The draw was made in Switzerland today, with the Boys in Green set to get their campaign under way in September.

Ireland played both sides during their failed World Cup qualification campaign, claiming a famous 1-0 win against Wales in Cardiff before Denmark crushed Martin O'Neill's side 5-1 in a playoff at the Aviva Stadium.

Matches are played on a home and away basis, so Ireland will play four games in total - two at the Aviva Stadium, one in Cardiff and one in Copenhagen.

Ireland will open their Nations League campaign with a trip to Cardiff on September 6 before back-to-back home games against the Danes (October 13) and Ryan Giggs' side (October 16) and the group will conclude with a trip to Copenhagen on November 19.
