Standout European Qualifiers

Wales face a tough test against group leaders Israel on 28 March but victory for Chris Coleman’s side at Haifa’s International Stadium could take them to the top of Group B.

Former Welsh international Mark Bowen and injured centre-back James Chester will present the coverage on Sky Sports 5 from 4.30pm on match day.

On 29 March Scotland will be keen to avoid a potential upset against Gibraltar while the Republic of Ireland travel to unbeaten Poland and face striker Robert Lewandowski.

Both games are available on Sky Sports with Scotland’s clash scheduled at 4.30pm and the Republic of Ireland taking a 7:30pm kick-off.

Also on 29 March, Northern Ireland take on Finland looking to bounce back from a defeat to Romania last time out and following three wins at the start of the campaign.

Former stars Nigel Worthington and Iain Dowie will be studio guests for Sky Sports’ coverage from Belfast’s Windsor Park (kick-off at 4.30pm).

A further 22 European Qualifiers will be broadcast between 28 March and 31 March with a friendly between Scotland and Northern Ireland also airing on 25 March at 7.30pm for Sky Sports viewers.
