Scotland vs Ireland: Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time & where to watch
Scotland will look to take a step closer to promotion from League B when they face the Republic of Ireland in the UEFA Nations League at Hampden Park on Saturday. The Tartan Army's 3-0 victory over Ukraine last time out propelled them to the top of Group B1, thrusting them into the reckoning for promotion to the top tier.
However, Steve Clarke's side are coming up against a Boys in Green outfit that inflicted a heavy 3-0 defeat on them when they met in Dublin over the summer. Indeed, Stephen Kenny's players need a positive result in this game and their next against Armenia to avoid relegation.
GOAL brings you details on how to watch the game on TV in the U.S. and UK, as well as how to stream live online.

Scotland squad & team news
John McGinn is set to don the captain's armband in the absence of injured skipper Andy Robertson, with injury precluding the Liverpool full-back from featuring in this window.
Everton defender Nathan Patterson misses out after being taken off on a stretcher against Ukraine, while Celtic midfielder David Turnbull withdrew from the squad with an ankle injury. It remains to be seen how Clarke will reshuffle his defence, but Greg Taylor and Aaron Hickey are options to replace Patterson.
Striker Lyndon Dykes may have done enough to displace Che Adams from the starting XI after his two-goal contribution from the bench against Ukraine.
Possible Scotland XI: Gordon; Hickey, Hendry, McKenna, Tierney; McTominay, McGregor, McGinn, Christie, Armstrong; Dykes.
Gordon, Kelly, McCrorie
Taylor, Porteous, Tierney, Hendry, McKenna, Ralston, Hickey, Gallagher, Doig
McTominay, McGinn, McGregor, Gilmour, Armstrong, Jack, McLean
Dykes, Adams, Christie, Fraser
Ireland squad & team news
Norwich City defender Andrew Omobamidele was ruled out of the squad, but Kenny has an otherwise full panel to choose from, featuring most of the same players that made light work of Scotland in June. Liverpool goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher was not fit enough to be included, so Southampton shot-stopper Gavin Bazunu will start between the posts.
In defence is where the chief dilemma rests for the Ireland boss, with key players Seamus Coleman and Shane Duffy finding competitive minutes hard to come by, though both have proven themselves capable of stepping up for the national team. Robbie Brady returns to the fold and is in line to feature at left-wing back, where he has excelled at club level for Preston North End.
Possible Ireland XI: Bazunu; Collins, Duffy, Egan; Doherty, Cullen, Molumby, Hendrick, Brady; Parrott, Robinson.
Bazunu, Travers, O'Leary
Coleman, Duffy, Doherty, Egan, Collins, O'Shea, Scales
McClean, Brady, Hendrick, Hourihane, Browne, O'Dowda, Cullen, Knight, Molumby
Robinson, Obafemi, Parrott, Hogan, Ogbene
