Giovanni Trapattoni’s Republic of Ireland will open their World Cup 2014 qualifying campaign away in Kazakhstan next September.

Members of the football associations from all six Group C sides were in Frankfurt discussing the fixtures, and consensus was found this morning. Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni had hoped for early home fixtures against the lower seeds, but the first Group C game at the Aviva Stadium will see the boys in green take on European giants Germany.

There are no home double-headers for the FAI to capitalise on, with each pairing seeing Ireland play one game at home and one away. Trapattoni admitted to being pleased with the fixtures. “This is a good fixture schedule for our team with a good balance to the matches,” the Italian said after the meeting. “We finish the campaign at home and start with a single away match against Kazakhstan which was important given the long distances involved. I am also happy with the balance obtained in the double headers and the timing of what we would expect to be some of the key matches in the group.”
