Stephen Kenny has named a careful starting XI for the UEFA Nations League fixture against Wales at Cardiff City Stadium

The manager is still chasing his first win since taking control of the national team as his side start their seventh game in charge since their debut in Bulgaria

Adam Idah has been named to lead the line with James McClean and Daryl Horgan also chosen to start in this attacking trio

McClean made a name for himself on this site in 2017 scoring the only goal of the game in Ireland’s World Cup qualifying victory, but was sent off in the same game last month

The Stoke City man looks set to start on the left of the three with Horgan, who impressed against England, will tighten the right flank

Jayson Molumby impressed when he faced England on Thursday night at Wembley and was rewarded with a place in the starting XI Jeff Hendrick and Robbie Brady form the midfield unit

Brady, who impressed in the first game against Wales last month, looks set to take on the role of number 10, tasked with connecting midfielder and attack

Exhausted by injuries and players excluded for other non-football reasons, the manager has appointed a makeshift full-back with captain Shane Duffy joined at the heart of the defense by Kevin Long

Matt Doherty looks set to line up at left-back again, while Dara O’Shea will play right-back, with Darren Randolph in goal

Gareth Bale has been named on the Welsh side and the Spurs man will captain the side, while David Brooks and Daniel James will also be lined up in attack

Kieffer Moore has been left out from XI, while Danny Ward replaces longtime goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey between the postsRhys Norrington-Davies also leaves for Wales

Wales: Danny Ward; Ben Davies, Joe Rodon, Chris Mepham, Neco Williams; Ethan Ampadu, Joe Morrell, Rhys Norrington-Davies; Daniel James, David Brooks, Gareth Bale (captain)

Ireland: Darren Randolph; Matt Doherty, Kevin Long, Shane Duffy (captain), Dara O’Shea; Jayson Molumby, Jeff Hendrick, Robbie Brady; Daryl Horgan, James McClean, Adam Idah
