Five Republic of Ireland players are set to miss out on today's UEFA Nations League meeting with Wales after a positive Covid-19 case was confirmed within the squad.
In a statement, the FAI say that the player in question, and four other players who have been deemed close contacts, have been 'stood down' for the game.
The association also say that the staff member who tested positive for Covid-19 midweek may have received a 'false positive' result.
Kick-off is at 2pm with manager Stephen Kenny handing starts to Shane Long and Jayson Molumby.
Elsewhere today in the same group, Finland and Bulgaria meet at 5-o'clock.
