Manchester United fullback Patrice Evra is set to play in Ireland next week.
The News of the World says the former French skipper caused a storm last November when he lashed out at Irish fans, saying calls for a replay should be granted "on Playstation" and that a statue of Thierry Henry should be erected.
Injury prevented him from playing in friendlier surroundings last week at the Aviva Stadium, when Manchester United took on a League of Ireland XI, but now he is set to get game-time against Shamrock Rovers on Sunday.
United boss Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed last week that Evra, who had a back injury, would feature in United's next two reserve fixtures. Those are against Rovers and then Arsenal reserves on Thursday, each game taking place in Tallaght.
Sunday's game will also see Ferguson reunited with former winger Keith Gillespie who will appear for Rovers and is hoping to win a contract with the Dublin club.
