On Friday, Germany will travel to Dublin to take on the Republic of Ireland at the Aviva Stadium.

The match is the third for Germany in Group C, while it is only the second for the Republic of Ireland.

Both nations are coming off of disappointing campaigns at Euro 2012.

Germany were dominant in group play but they could not make it past the semifinals, where they lost to Italy; Ireland came away from Poland and Ukraine as one of two nations that did not earn a single point in group play.

With both nations looking to qualify for the 2014 World Cup, Friday's match will be a crucial test to see where both nations stand in that process.

Here is a complete preview for Friday's match at the Aviva Stadium.
