Ahead of Saturday’s draw for the Euro 2016 finals, Seamus Coleman has said he won’t mind if the Republic of Ireland get drawn in the same group as England.
The Irish are seeded along with Northern Ireland and Wales in Pot 4 but could be drawn against England who are in Pot 1.
Speaking over the weekend, Coleman said he would be happy enough to be drawn against the old enemy.
“It’s no problem getting England,” the Killybegs man said.
“We’ve played them twice in the last couple of years and drew with them twice.
“England probably wouldn’t enjoy playing us.
“Look, it would be great if we could get them and history repeated itself, but we’re just delighted to be in the draw. It was great to qualify against Bosnia. Such a great feeling.”
