International friendlies’ results: England 1-1 Republic of Ireland

England were held to a 1-1 draw by Republic of Ireland in an even affair at Wembley Stadium.

It was the first meeting between two sides since infamous match at the old Lansdowne Road in Dublin in 1995 and the emotions were running high both on and off the pitch. Shane Long got Ireland off to a flying start with a fine header in the 13th minute. England midfielder Frank Lampard restored the parity ten minutes later with a close-range finish. Both teams had a number of attempts at goal, which promised much, but the quality of finishing was poor throughout. That is why the draw was probablya fair result for the game.

Elsewhere Germany thrashed Ecuador 4-2 with Podolski and Bender scoring a brace. USA suffered 4-2 defeat against talented Belgium side.
