Ireland Vs. Armenia Live, Euro 2012 Qualifying: Lineups

In the final round of Euro 2012 qualifying, Ireland and Armenia both trail Russia in Group B with a chance at a playoff spot. Ireland technically have a chance to win the group, but that's only if Russia does the absolutely unthinkable and loses to a pointless Andorra side. Ireland are sitting on 18 points and Armenia have 17, so a draw would give Ireland a playoff spot. Still, Armenia will be satisfied with their showing, as very few believed that they would be in control of their own destiny come the final round. Here are the lineups.

Ireland lineup: Given; St. Ledger, Dunne, O'Shea, Kelly, McGeady, Whelan, Andrews, Duff, Doyle, Cox

Armenia lineup: Berezovsky; Hovsepyan, Mkrtchyan, Pizelli, Malakyan, Ghazaryan, Mkoyan, Aleksanyan, Mkhitaryan, Hayrapetyan. Movsisyan

Ireland's expected shape is a 4-4-2, while Armenia's shape will most likely be a 4-2-3-1. The home side are missing leading scorer Robbie Keane with an injury, but Kevin Doyle and Simon Cox make up a tough strike partnership. For Armenia, Henrik Mkhitaryan of Shakhar Donetsk and Yura Movsisyan of Krandosar are the key men.

Kickoff is at 1:45 pm ET, 6:45 pm local and the match can be seen on ESPN3 in the USA.
