The Republic of Ireland will complete their international fixtures this year with a home friendly against the United States at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin on Tuesday November 18th.

The game comes four days after Martin O’Neill’s side play Scotland in a European Championship qualifier at Parkhead in Glasgow on Friday November 14th.
The Republic of Ireland are next in action when they take on Oman in a friendly at the Aviva on Wednesday September 3rd ahead of their opening Group D qualifier away to Georgia on Sunday June 7th.
In October, newcomers Gibraltar come to Dublin form a qualifier on Saturday October 11th before the daunting trip to take on world champions Germany in Gelsenkirchen the following Tuesday.
