A pre-match video shown to the Republic of Ireland squad is the subject of an FAI investigation.

The screening happened before last week’s friendly defeat to England.

Some outlets have described its contents as “anti-English”, while others within the camp described it as “pro-Irish” and “very tame”.

The FAI said last night they’re looking into the film as a matter of urgency.
