England's footballers will travel to Dublin for a friendly against Martin O'Neill and Roy Keane's Ireland in June 2015, it has just been announced by the FAI.
The game, set to kick off on Sunday June 7th, will be the first time that England have faced the boys in green on Irish soil since the infamous Lansdowne Road riots of February 1995 - a gap which will extend past twenty years by the time the two teams walk out on to the pitch. That incident is seen as one of the lowest moments in Irish football history. Tensions between the two football associations were at an all time high after the incident and the two nations were kept apart over the following 18 years.
The match will come six days prior to Ireland's Euro 2016 qualifier against Scotland at the same venue and will serve as the ideal preparation for that game.
Ireland traveled to Wembley last May where Shane Long gave Ireland the lead before Chelsea's Frank Lampard scored England's equaliser in the 1-1 draw.
Let's hope for a repeat of the below when the two teams walk out onto the pitch in a little over a year's time, eh?
