Referee Victor Kassai is to hold a pitch inspection ahead of the Republic of Ireland's World Cup qualifier against Serbia in Belgrade tonight.
The FAI has confirmed that the Hungarian official will take a look at the playing surface at the Rajko Mitic Stadium following torrential rain in the city during the afternoon.

Pitch inspection at 6.15pm, after heavy rain in Belgrade. If it's called off I'll be furious. Then I'll calm down and leave work early.— Paddy Power (@paddypower) September 5, 2016
There have been unconfirmed suggestions that the fixture could instead be played tomorrow.
If Serbia v ROI called off tonight the word in Belgrade is it will be refixed for tomorrow afternoon. Know more after 7.15 pitch inspection.— Philip Quinn (@Quinner61) September 5, 2016
However, UEFA say that the pitch was cleared when it was checked this morning and the fixture will only be cancelled if the referee decides that it is too dangerous when he carries out the inspection this evening.
Meanwhile, Ireland manager Martin O'Neill will leave it as late as possible before finalising his starting team and his team captain for tonight's game.
