Everton right back Seamus Coleman is looking forward to facing England this weekend but insists his Irish colleagues must focus on the game against Scotland in a Euro 2016 qualifier next week.
Ireland face England in Dublin for the first time since 1995 and Coleman says there will be a great atmosphere, but added that the Euro qualifier against Scotland is a must-win game if they are to get to France next summer.
“There are two big games coming up for me,” said Coleman
“We have got England up first in a friendly, but I suppose in our eyes there is only one big game this summer and that is Scotland.
“There will be a great atmosphere for the England game, there always is. England will bring a few over and our fans always support us well.
“We are using that as build-up to our main game against Scotland where we need the three points.”
