DAVID Forde has been named in the Republic of Ireland side to face England in a friendly at Wembley on Wednesday evening.

The Millwall goalkeeper, who has made six previous appearances for his country, will line up against Roy Hodgson's side at the national stadium after retaining the number one jersey.

Forde told TalkSport: "It's every Irishman's dream to play England at Wembley so it's going to be a fantastic occasion and one we're all looking forward to. I've been fortunate enough to play at Wembley a few times and it's an awesome arena.



"The English players sound like they're right up for it as well – there's a lot of tradition and a lot of bragging rights."

Lions striker Andy Keogh is liked to be named on Ireland's bench.

      @dobbers22: Yes and if it wasn't for Fordey they would have lost by many more.

    Forde, Keogh, Shittu all Millwall internationals. Congratulations.
    Now, there's a certain Welsh centre forward who would look very good wearing the number 9 shirt for us well.

    Always a proud moment to see a Millwall player playing international football.

    Mixed feelings. Pleased for Fordey that he gets to represent his country but would like to see him look unimpressive so that no PL club is going to tempt him away from us.

    Good luck Fordey, at least the Irish show some pride when playing for their country.

    like your style Lion.ie but I fear the usual half time whole team substitution will just end up with a dull draw. I am going for 1:1.

      @glyngo: Millwall & England, it's like two life sentences in one. Hope you had the money down Glyngo and I think we could be looking for a new 'keeper next season.

    I thought Townsend was going to give the nod to Foredy for MOTM tonight.....but alas not.
    Coleman gets it instead......of course he plays for a Prem side....couldn't possibly give it to a Championship player, especially one that plays for Millwall.

    Well played fordey
    Got my vote for MOTM
    Hope he stays but I've had a gut feeling for a while now and all the praise tonight will make it even harder for us to keep hold of him. Hope I'm wrong.
