United States vs. Republic of Ireland (International Friendly)

The U.S. men's national team meets Ireland on Tuesday in Dublin at Aviva Stadium. The United States is coming off a defeat against Colombia on Friday in London, where the U.S. held a 1-0 lead through the first half before conceding twice in the second half. Ireland fell 1-0 to Scotland in a European Championship qualifier on Friday, the first Irish defeat in Group D play. 

Monday's match is just the ninth meeting between the U.S. and Ireland all-time. The teams last met in 2002, just before the 2002 World Cup. Ireland topped the U.S. 2-1 in that match. 

The United States got off to a promising start against Colombia before ultimately falling to the No.3-ranked team in the world. Jozy Altidore converted a penalty in the ninth minute, but Colombia earned the majority of chances the rest of the match. The Colombians leveled the game in the 61st minute with a Carlos Bacca goal before Teofilo Gutierrez netted the winner in the 87th minute. 

LA Galaxy striker Robbie Keane was on Ireland's original roster for the match, but the Irish FA announced Saturday that Keane was released back to the Galaxy. Keane, who is Ireland's all-time leading scorer, will play for the Galaxy in the MLS Western Conference final against Seattle Sounders starting next weekend. 

The U.S. U-20 national team defeated Ireland's U-20 team 1-0 in a friendly on Saturday in Spain.
