The Football Association of Ireland plans to examine a video that was shown to the Ireland squad prior to the recent international friendly with England.

Stephen Kenny's side lost 3-0 at Wembley, but the Daily Mail reported a video was shown to the squad on the day of the game as a motivational tool. 

RTÉ Sport understands that two-and-a-half minutes of the video was famous goals scored against England, from Ray Houghton, Kevin Sheedy, Niall Quinn, Tony Cascarino and Shane Long, followed by 30 seconds of "historical context" of the relationship between Ireland and England.

There has been no board meeting held in relation to the issue but one official told RTÉ Sport "we will follow due process if necessary", however no formal investigation has been launched.

In a statement to RTÉ Sport this evening, the association responded by confirming it will be investigating the incident. 

"The Football Association of Ireland is aware of issues surrounding content shared with our senior men’s team ahead of the recent friendly against England at Wembley Stadium," the statement read.

"The FAI is already looking into this matter internally as a matter of urgency to establish the facts.

"The FAI has no further comment to make at this time." 

Kenny is still searching for his first win after eight games in charge as Ireland boss, including a penalty shoot-out defeat to Slovakia which ended hopes of qualifying for the Euro 2020 finals.
