England fans showed off their sense of humour at Dublin's Aviva Stadium in the international friendly with the Republic of Ireland.

As the Fifa corruption scandal broke last week, the Irish FA (FAI) were at the centre of the news.

The FAI took a 5million euro payment from Fifa President Sepp Blatter so that they would not pursue any legal action over the Thierry Henry handball that say France qualify for the 2010 World Cup.

'Oh, Sepp Blatter, he paid for your ground'.
