England will not be tackling the Republic of Ireland in a friendly at any point in 2011.
Reports had surfaced claiming officials from the FA and their Football Association of Ireland counterparts were in discussions about a meeting at Dublin's new Aviva Stadium next June.
The Three Lions will have a spare date to fill if, as expected, the proposed friendly with Thailand on June 8 is scrapped, and it was suggested England would be making their first visit to Dublin since the ill-fated encounter in 1995 that was abandoned due to crowd trouble after just 27 minutes.
However, Press Association Sport understands there will not be a game arranged between the two countries next summer and there are no plans for a meeting at any point next year.
Meanwhile, there has still been no decision about opponents for England's February friendly.
England FA are scared shitless. It's only a fucking friendly match just play the thing. Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland all play eachother the odd time and England have played Wales, Scotland and N.Ireland in recent times. Just play the fing match!!!
This rant is in relation to The FA ONLY
If it was the other way around I would say the same
