Germany will not be the only champions to grace the Aviva Stadium tonight.
The World champs will be joined at the home of Irish soccer by Ireland’s Region Cup’s winning squad.
The Irish Amateur team will be presented to the capacity crowd during the half time interval of Ireland’s European qualifier against Germany.
Just over 1000 fans turned up to watch Ireland as the Eastern Region claimed the Regions Cup in Tallaght Stadium on July 4, but the squad will get the adulation of a more sizeable Green Army in the Aviva tonight.
Ireland secured victory in the prestigious tournament with a single goal final win over Zagreb, David Lacey registering the decisive strike after just 10 minutes.
Ireland accounted for Ankara, South Moravia and Tuzla in the group stages.
