Sorry my mistake. Thought that was the game dates rather than the window
No, they are the game dates. 

Oh great! Where were they confirmed? Need to book time off and hotels! 
Nothing announced officially yet due mostly to the issues in the article linked above.

Tough one alright I'd love to see us play say Malta and Kosovo one to hopefully gain some confidence another to tick of the list of teams we've played.

But I get that neither would really attract the crowd the FAI would be looking for....though given how long matches were behind closed doors who knows. As people said Qatar drew a decent crowd

Surely we can draw a decent crowd regardless, Qatar drew 25k and you could say that were in a better place now than we were then.

Was never going to be England. Both their games are in Wembley and we only played them there in November 2020

it’s been a long time since some people have been to games - with the upswing in confidence in the team it would be a 35k regardless of who we play.

This is dragging out something fierce. Have we ever had to wait this long for a fixture announcement?

Hopefully they're working on France/Belgium/Croatia. According to the link below, which is always accurate and updated quite quickly, Belgium are free for the 1st match of the window and France and Croatia have no games announced yet.

I wouldn't be entirely surprised if they're planning for us to play a loser of a playoff semi final. Some big hitters in there like Italy, Portugal, Poland, Sweden, Austria, Turkey, Russia, Czech Rep etc.. that could potentially become available for our 2nd fixture.

And wait until they lose the semi before announcing? Giving 3 days notice?

As the report say's unlikely to include players with over 50 caps, that's just what Belgium seem to do for friendlies
