Republic of Ireland captain Seamus Coleman is relishing the chance to take on Denmark and has spoken of his belief in the squad.

Ireland travel to Denmark on June 7 as they attempt to build on a positive start to Euro 2020 qualifying.

They sit top of Group D after claiming victories over Gibraltar and Georgia but face their toughest test yet against the Danes.

It’s the fifth time the two nations have clashed since November 2017, having met in World Cup qualifying and the Nations League, but Ireland are winless in four.

Despite their recent struggles, Coleman believes Ireland can claim a result when they head to Copenhagen.

Coleman said: ‘We’ve got a bit of history with them.

They’re a very good team with some very good players but I fully believe that this squad and the way we’ve performed recently, we can go there and get a result.

‘We need to get at them, get in their faces from the start and don’t let their quality players play but we have got a great group of lads in there and we have full belief and it’s a very big game for us.’
