Some people have been questioning the reasoning behind it, just over a week ahead of our crucial World Cup qualifier with Austria on Sunday week.
That said, the Boys in Green have a fine tradition of playing in the States. In fact, Thursday night will mark the 20thtime Ireland have played an international in the US - an astonishing number! That's A LOT of catering to the American diaspora and the 'St Patty's Day' brigade.
