England's First Friendly In Dublin Since 1995 Ends In Draw

England's first visit to Dublin since 1995 ended in a dismal draw with the Republic of Ireland.
The Football Association had written to all 3,000 travelling England fans asking them to behave in the Irish capital.
Both anthems were immaculately observed before kick-off, and the only sign of any tension came when some Ireland supporters whistled as England fans sang God Save The Queen during the game.
The game itself was a massive disappointment.
England and Ireland were using the game to prepare for their Euro 2016 qualifiers next week but it was devoid of the intensity spectators expect in these competitive national encounters.
