Republic of Ireland take on England on Sunday 7th May, 2015, with kickoff at 20:00. This match is currently being shown LIVE on ITV1.

There are pointless friendlies in football, this much we know, but when it comes to matches that really shouldn’t have happened it seems like this one might take the biscuit. We have to consider the possibility that everything goes off without a hitch of course, but the unique and terrible history between England and the Republic means this game could be a royal mess.

It’s also a chance for Roy Hodgson to test some of his younger players in an intense atmosphere, which is nice, but to be honest the best thing that can happen is probably nothing much this Friday evening.
