BEFORE THE DUST completely settled on Ireland’s euphoric night in Lille, the FAI have revealed the next opportunity most of us will have to go along and see the Boys in Green in the flesh.

Hopefully, Martin O’Neill’s side will have more than 90 minutes left at Euro 2016, but their first home game after the tournament has been arranged for Wednesday, 31 August.

Oman, ranked 100th in the world, will be Ireland’s homecoming opposition at the Aviva Stadium and will serve as a warm-up fixture for Ireland’s crucial World Cup qualifying opener away to Serbia on 5 September.

Ireland’s first competitive fixture post-Euros will come a month later, when Georgia visit Dublin on Thursday 6 October.
