The game will officially open The Aviva Stadium for international football and will see Robbie Keane collect his 100th international cap.
It will also mark a significant millstone for Sheridan who will start a full international for the first time before jetting out to Bulgaria to sign for CSKA Sofia in a £300,000 deal.
An injury to Kevin Doyle has pushed Sheridan into the side despite playing the full 90 minutes of last night’s 5-0 win for the u-21 side over Estonia.
Sheridan’s career has been never been predictable with his tonight’s cap coming less than a month after his final Celtic appearance playing at centre-back away to Lincoln City.
Looking ahead to his transfer Sheridan said: “It’s a risk and a big step. The hardest thing will be settling in. It’s a new country, a new culture and a new language but I’m willing to give it a go.
“Hopefully if the football is going well for me, everything else will fall into place. It’s got the potential to be a really good move. If I can do well I can get to play in Europe and hopefully keep my place in the Ireland squad.
“It’s all agreed, I just have to go over and sign. I’m not sure when that will happen, maybe Thursday or Friday of this week but I expect it to go through.
