Sweden and Denmark have met 104 times, Sweden winning 45 matches and Denmark 40. Sweden were the only side to beat Denmark in their glorious EURO '92 finals campaign.
Bosnia and Herzeogivna's only previous encounter with Ireland was a 2012 friendly fixture in Dublin, Aiden McGeady scoring the only goal in a 1-0 victory for the Irish.
Hungary have won six and lost five of their 16 meetings with Norway. They are without a win in nine games against the Norwegians since a 4-1 success in Budapest in 1981.
