The authorities in the UK have anounced they will enforce banning orders forcing convicted football hooligans to surrender their passports and sign in at a local police station on the day England will play a friendly match against Ireland.
The police decided to enforce these rules since English supporters have been misbehaving the last four England away matches with druken anti-social behaviour and unpleasant chanting aimed at the home supporters trying to provoke them. English supporters will also have to show a valid photo when purchasing a ticket for the match against Ireland.
Ireland – England will be played on 7 June in the Aviva stadium in Dublin. Last time they met in Dublin the match was abandoned early due to crowd violence.
