Republic of Ireland National Football Team
Playing their home fixtures in the Republic of Ireland at Aviva Stadium in Dublin, the Ireland national football team is managed by Martin O’Neill. The team was founded in 1921. Ireland next face Italy in a summer friendly international match at Craven Cottage in London, England. In their last friendly encounter three years ago in Liege, Ireland beat Italy 2 – 0 with keeper David Forde delivering a clean sheet on his fantastic first start for the national team.
Key Ireland Footballers
A new kid on the Ireland block, Manchester City goalkeeper, nineteen year old Ian Lawlor, has recently been added to the Ireland squad for upcoming summer friendly games. Moved up from the Under 21’1, Lawlor was drafted to play in Ireland’s match-ups with Italy, Costa Rica, and Portugal. Keeper Darren Randolph is out with injury and Rob Elliot is getting married and will miss the match as well. O'Neill recently debuted Newcastle goalie Elliot in Ireland’s 2-1 win against Turkey in Dublin. Other key Ireland national team footballers include striker Kevin Doyle, Richard Keogh, Conor Sammon, and Jeff Hendrick. Ireland’s goalkeeper David Forde has high hopes of a 17th cap against Italy.
