Ireland will host England in an international friendly at Aviva Stadium in Dublin in June next year.

The clash will take place on Sunday 7 June, six days before Ireland face Scotland in a Euro 2016 qualifier at the same venue.

The sides last met in a friendly encounter in  May 2013, Shane Long scoring for Ireland in game that ended in a 1-1 draw.

In total, England have played Ireland on Irish soil a total of six times, with the sides having drawn three times and Ireland losing two encounters.

The last meeting between the sides on Irish soil took place in February 1995 at Lansdowne Road. A David Kelly goal had given Ireland a 1-0 lead when the game was abandoned due to rioting by English fans.
