The FAI has confirmed that the Republic of Ireland will play host to the Netherlands in their final home international before departing for the summer's European Championships in France.

Securing the game is somewhat a coup, as the Dutch are in demand having not qualified for next summer's finals.

A tweet from the FAI confirmed that the game will take place on Friday 27 May - two weeks on from the end of the Premier League season.

The clash with the Dutch will be the final chance for players to impress manager Martin O'Neill, ahead of the Euro 2016 squad deadline on 3 June.

O'Neill's side will also play two other friendlies in Dublin, with an Easter double header lined up against Switzerland and Slovakia.  

The Netherlands last visited Ireland in 2006 and beat Steve Staunton's side 4-0.
