Ireland to play Georgia in June friendly

The Republic of Ireland will face Georgia in a friendly in Dublin as they prepare for their World Cup qualifier against the Faroe Islands in June.

The Georgians will head for the Aviva Stadium on June 2, four days after Giovanni Trapattoni's men play England at Wembley.

 

Trapattoni will use the fixture to finalise his preparations for the home game against the Faroes on June 7.

 

The Republic, who travel to Sweden and then host Austria later this month in a double-header which could go a long way to determining their fate, will hope to head into the summer having taken a maximum six points from the Faroes following a 4-1 win in Torshavn in October - four days after their 6-1 humiliation at the hands of Germany.
