Bums in seats is the big thing here for the FAI. Which is fair enough I think

Exactly they will be keen to get 2 home full houses. Not such a good idea for seedings and morale if we lost both games. Maybe one top tier team game v someone around our level like Norway, North Macedonia etc 
It would damage this forums' reputation

Italy would have been ideal particularly as by the current records they are considered our first ever opponent and indeed our second.  They were also our opponents when we first started to use Lansdowne for bigger games (1971).  I appreciate the 1927 game was also played there but Dalymount was our home after that even after Waterford started playing big games at Lansdowne.    

The Sky reporter in San Marino had stated England would have two home friendlies in March.  That would almost certainly have come from the FA.  

I think a glamour friendly is needed to celebrate the centenary and it would certinly help sell season tickets.  Hopefully we will play on different nights to the playoffs as well as they will make for great tv.

I had heard from somebody connected to the FAI that one of ours was going to be England at home, though Germany are trying to get England to come to Germany too and they will only do one away.

The old Fai were obsessed with a home friendly with England and its looking like its the same again. We only played them last year absolutely no point playing them again plenty of other teams out there.

I can’t see England playing away unless it’s in Dubai or somewhere ME against Brazil or Argentina. Their fans haven’t had an away day for a while so a trip to Dublin or Berlin would attract all sorts of knuckleheads.

Italy at home would be class. European champions. Big crowd.

As was said above though it will sell well regardless. Bigger the team the more they can charge though. And we need €€€!

Problem there is that Italy will be in the play-offs so we can't play them. Can't get any of the South American teams either as they will be finishing their qualifying group. France or Spain would be good.

Spain or Belgium be nice.  Haven't played Spain in Dublin since 1993 if I'm not mistaken. 97 was the last time we played Belgium at home. Both overdue a visit

We have played 4 home friendlies v England in the history of the FAI.  Only 2 of those have been in the last 50 years and only one of them was completed.
