Seamus Coleman and John O'Shea are both fit to start the Republic of Ireland's first World Cup qualifier tonight.

That's according to manager Martin O'Neill who, as ever, won't name his starting eleven for the meeting with Serbia until the hour before kick off.

The Group D clash gets underway at 7.45.

Elsewhere in the group this evening, Wales host Moldova - also at 7.45.

The action gets underway at 5pm with Austria travelling to Georgia.
