Fan fears, FIFA deal cloud Ireland-England game

(L-R) England's Jack Wilshere, Charlie Austin and Jamie Vardy take part in an England team training session at Saint George's Park in Burton-upon-Trent on June 4, 2015Concerns over fan behaviour and revelations about FIFA’s secret payment to the Football Association of Ireland threaten to overshadow Sunday’s friendly in Dublin between the Republic of Ireland and England. England are playing in the Irish capital for the first time since a riot by far-right English hooligans forced a 1995 friendly game between the countries at Lansdowne Road to be abandoned after only 27 minutes. The FAI has also been touched by the scandal engulfing FIFA following the revelation by chief executive John Delaney that the world governing body paid his organisation five million euros ($5.5 million) to stop them taking legal action after a handball by Thierry Henry took France to the 2010 World Cup at Ireland’s expense.
