Ray Houghton: Republic will face aerial threat

Former player Ray Houghton says the Republic of Ireland will face a tough aerial challenge against Bosnia-Herzegovina on Friday.

The teams meet in the first leg of their Euro 2016 play-off in Zenica on Friday, with the return match in Dublin on Monday.

Houghton, who famously scored against England in the 1988 European Championships, said the Republic's priority was to keep the tie alive for the second leg.
