Republic of Ireland want England friendly in Dublin

The Republic of Ireland are seeking talks over a friendly with England in Dublin - their first since 1995.

The two countries met at Wembley in May last year with the score ending 1-1 and the Football Association of Ireland say there is an agreement for a return match.

FAI chief executive John Delaney told BBC Sport: "I would be hopeful it could be played in March next year. But there are no guarantees.

"There was a reciprocal agreement for them to come to Dublin. I thought it was right that we played the first match at Wembley because the last time we played them was the 1995 game."
