The Republic of Ireland will face world and European champions Spain in New York this summer, the Football Association of Ireland have confirmed.

Giovanni Trapattoni's Boys in Green will play Spain at the home of the New York Yankees, one of the city's Major League Baseball franchises, on June 11.

It will be the last of four consecutive fixtures for the men's senior team, with them also facing England at Wembley on May 29, Georgia in an international friendly in Dublin on June 2 and the Faroe Islands in a home 2014 World Cup qualifier five days later.

Manager, Giovanni Trapattoni said: "I am looking forward to playing this match in New York. Our team is in evolving and showing a lot of promise.

"The recent games demonstrated that our players have serious potential. Matches against opposition like England, Georgia and Spain are very helpful to that development and great preparation for our important competitive fixtures in June, September and October.''

The game will be the second of two football fixtures at Yankee Stadium this summer, with Chelsea taking on fellow Barclays Premier League side Manchester City on May 25.
