Former Eire star Matt Holland speaks to FATV about Wembley clash with England
Matt Holland says Republic Of Ireland will arrive at Wembley on Wednesday determined to ‘prove a point’.
England host Giovanni Trapattoni’s side in their final home match of the season, prior to heading over to Rio for a game with Brazil on Sunday.
And with a near sell-out expected at Wembley for this international derby, former Eire international Holland spoke to FATV about the game.
He said: "They'll be up for it, there's a bit to prove as England have got the bigger names, the bigger stars and the household names.
"They'll want to prove a point and get one over on them.”
Former Ipswich Town and Charlton Athletic midfielder Holland won 49 caps for the Republic Of Ireland during his career.
And he also believes that England are in the right hands with Roy Hodgson at the helm.
He added: "Roy's done a very good job.
“He's brought stability, discipline and organisation to the camp.
"There's a smile back on the players' faces and I think they're more relaxed."
