Football | Ireland to face England at Wembley in November

The Republic of Ireland will face England in an international friendly at Wembley on November 12th.

It will be the first meeting between the nations since a scoreless draw at the Aviva Stadium in June 2015 and will serve as a warm-up for the Boys in Green ahead of their UEFA Nations League games away to Wales and home to Bulgaria.

Stephen Kenny, who is still searching for his first win as Ireland manager, says England will provide quality opposition in London.

"It’s a high quality game for the team. With minimal travel between London, Cardiff and Dublin in these changed times, it is better for us logistically with player welfare paramount," he said.

"It helps ensure we will have our strongest possible squad available for all three matches."

Ireland's last trip to Wembley to face the Three Lions ended in a 1-1 draw in 2013.

Earlier this month, Gareth Southgate's side beat Wales 3-0 in a friendly before losing 1-0 to Denmark in the Nations League.

England were originally scheduled to host New Zealand in the first game of the November international window, but that game was cancelled due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.
