The FAI has announced that a limited number of remaining tickets for Irish supporters will go on sale tomorrow morning for the highly anticipated international friendly against England on June 7.

With pre-sale initiatives with clubs, leagues, season ticket holders, Club Ireland members, and supporters’ clubs complete, a limited number of remaining tickets will be made available for the encounter against Roy Hodgson's side.

The tickets will be available on-line through from 10am

Meanwhile, the English Football Association is to email some 3,000 travelling English fans ahead of their June 7 friendly with Ireland, warning them not to chant "F*** the IRA".

The FA are appealing for good behaviour and have warned that any repeat of the chant could see individuals banned and Fifa sanctions against England.

In an internal memo circulated within the FA detailing its plans for Dublin, the organisation acknowledges "a distinct deterioration in England fan behaviour" recently.

So far this season, 18 members of the England Supporters Travel Club (ESTC) have been suspended and another 46 "officially warned" about "inappropriate behaviour".

These were mainly in relation to incidents during an August trip to Basel for the Euro 2016 qualifier with Switzerland and a friendly with Italy where the IRA chant was widely used.
