Virgin Media Three's line-up of televised games this week is every football fan's dream

The channel formerly known as TV3 are pulling out all the stops.

Ireland are playing against Wales in their Nations League opener this Thursday.

The game itself may be the least anticipated clash in recent memory.

There has been non-stop talk of training ground bust-ups, we are missing some of our best players, and our most exciting prospect doesn't currently want to play for us.

So you'd be forgiven for not being particularly excited over this one.

But luckily, there's absolutely loads of class international football on the television this week, thanks to Virgin Media Three.

The fixtures that we have available are as follows...

Thursday - 19.45 - Germany vs France

Friday - 19.45 - Italy vs Poland

Saturday - 19.45 - England vs Spain

Sunday - 19.45 - France vs Netherlands

Monday - 19.45 - Portugal vs Italy

Tuesday - 19.45 -  Spain vs Croatia

Wow.

Looking at those fixtures, we can't help but be reminded of the World Cup.

A simpler time...

At a point where a lot of people would rather do anything other than watch the Irish international football team, we are very appreciative of these cracking games.

It remains to be seen whether the Nations League will be a success, but if it keeps giving us games like this, we're more than happy.
