Scotland lock horns with Ireland in Dublin shortly in what's expected to be a fiery 2022 UEFA Nations League clash. Having lost both their Group B1 matches so far, Stephen Kenny's Ireland are in desperate need of a win. The game kicks off at 5pm BST (12pm ET) this afternoon and is free to watch in the USA. Make sure you know how to watch an Ireland vs Scotland live stream for free, online and on TV, wherever you are.

The team news is in and there's no place for Ross Stewart in the Scotland starting XI. Che Adams plays up front. Grant Hanley is in for John Souttar. McTominay anchors the side with McGinn looking forward. Meanwhile Kenny has named five changes to the Ireland team that lost to Ukraine. It's the same back three but with Alan Browne and James McClean at wing-back. Josh Cullen and Jayson Molumby will run the midfield.

Ireland rocked up to the 2022 UEFA Nations League brimming with confidence, on the back of an eight-match winning streak. That belief was quickly shaken by a dispiriting 1-0 loss to Armenia, followed by a dismal 1-0 loss to Ukraine. With manager Stephen Kenny having clocked up just two wins in 17 competitive matches, The Boys in Green will be on a mission to give the home fans a scoreline worth toasting.

As for Scotland, they shot to the top of the Group B1 table following an assured 2-0 victory over Armenia. It likely won't erase the disappointment of failing to qualify for the Qatar World Cup, but a win over Ireland this Saturday would certainly brighten Steve Clarke's dressing room.

It's been seven years since these two teams met in Dublin (a 1-1 draw) so don't miss this one. The match kicks off at 5pm BST today, at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.
