The Republic of Ireland and England have successfully negotiated a friendly for 2015 in Dublin.

The Irish, hopeful for a deal since early February, will host the Three Lions inside Aviva Stadium in June of 2015.

This will be the first time England will take on the Republic since 1995, but the friendly had to be abandoned because of rioting.

The two sides played last year in London ending in a 1-1 draw with goals from England’s Frank Lampard and Ireland’s Shane Long.

“It will be a significant moment for England to play in Dublin again, and due to the hard work by both organizations on many fronts we fully expect it to be a fantastic occasion enjoyed by both sets of fans,” said Adrian Bevington, Club England’s managing director.

Historically, England have won five and drawn two of their 14 matches against the Republic.
