France and Ireland will meet on Sunday in the Euro 2016 round of 16. 

The match, which will be played in Lyon, marks the first time the two sides have played since a controversial Thierry Henry handball during a playoff match sent France to the 2010 World Cup over Ireland. 

France reached the knockout stage after winning Group A. France kicked off its tournament with wins over Romania and Albania before playing Switzerland to a scoreless draw. 

Ireland qualified for the knockout rounds in thrilling fashion. After drawing its opening game with Sweden, Ireland fell 3–0 to Belgium, putting the country’s hopes of advancing in jeopardy. But Ireland scored a late winner against Italy in its final group stage match, sealing a third–place finish in the group and sending the team to the round of 16.
