All Ireland football quarter-final Galway v Kerry, we have the latest team news, betting advice and all the stats you need for Sunday’s game, start time 2pm

Galway have had a very up and down season, they have played very well to beat Mayo and Donegal but put up no show against Roscommon in the Connacht final, while Kerry are probably yet to even get out of third gear.
