IRE vs POR Dream11: The international break is on and that means World Cup Qualifiers are back. Ireland will host Portugal at the Aviva Stadium later tonight.

They are coming into this game on the back of a 3-0 win versus bottom-placed Azerbaijan. Chiedozie Ogbene scored an injury-time goal after a first-half brace from Callum Robinson.

Meanwhile, Portugal are in the second spot and can go top with a victory tonight. They have 16 points in six games. A Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick ensured a smooth victory over Luxembourg last time out.
