The Irish will play against the backdrop of failure in qualification
The Irish national team has already completed its qualification for the Euros, where they performed poorly with 6 defeats and only 2 victories, beating only Gibraltar. The team has clearly lost confidence due to constant failures, although facing tough opponents like France, the Netherlands, and Greece. In their last match, the team lost to the Netherlands with a score of 0-1. Let's see how the Irish will perform against a weaker opponent when the pressure of the result is not as intense.

New Zealand has been without official matches for a year and a half
Due to its geographical location, New Zealand has to search for opponents and travel far to play any matches. The team played its last official match a year and a half ago when they lost to Costa Rica 0-1 in the decisive match for qualification for the World Cup. Overall, New Zealand played their last match just days ago, losing away to Greece with a score of 0-2. By European standards, the team can be considered at the level of an average opponent.
The opponents have only met once, four years ago, when the Irish managed to secure a home victory with a score of 3-1.

The hosts are considered favorites, although New Zealand is certainly not an easy opponent and is capable of putting up a worthy resistance. Perhaps the Irish will find it easier when there is less pressure on the players for results. We can expect a clash between two entertaining teams, so a bet on a total of less than 2.5 goals looks reasonable.
