England vs. Ireland: Open thread

Chat with CFC as England take on Ireland for the first time in 18 years.

Scott Heavey

The season is over, which means we have to pay attention to internationals now. I'll be throwing up an open thread for any game that is on television or *cough cough* widely available that involves Tottenham Hotspur players. This England-Ireland game isn't exactly heavy on Spurs players -- especially due to Kyle Walker's injury -- but they're here. so let's talk about them!

Here are the lineups.

Fun stat! This is the first game Wayne Rooney has started since April 28. I think the Carrick-Lampard pivot might be the least mobile one ever. I like James McCarthy and Glenn Whelan, but I wish that Darron Gibson was in this team.

If my name doesn't make it obvious, I'm a casual Ireland fan, so dealwithit.gif. Kickoff is at 8 pm local, 3 pm ET from Wembley Stadium. You can find the game on ITV in the UK, FOX Soccer in the US or Sportsnet World in Canada.
