The FAI has confirmed that it has until 17 November to answer the charge from FIFA over wearing a 1916 logo in the friendly with Switzerland last March.

Speaking at this afternoon’s press conference, FAI Director of Communications Ian Mallon confirmed that the charge was pending but stated that there would be no further comment from the FAI until after that date.

"There is a charge, which was brought last Friday, as you know, a disciplinary matter. We have until November 17 to respond and until after that point, we won't be making any comment on it," said Mallon.

Ireland assistant manager Roy Keane would not be drawn into the debate about Ireland wearing the 1916 logo, nor the ongoing England-Scotland poppy debate.

He added: "I think as far as I can comment on it - is there a charge or something? I can't comment until the charge is sorted out. But listen, as coaching staff and players, we're focusing on the game. Let the FAI deal with that."
