Martin O’Neill’s Republic of Ireland side, who, like Northern Ireland, qualified as one of the four best third-placed teams, take on hosts France in Lyon on Sunday at 14:00 BST.
Northern Ireland and Wales had never reached the European Championship finals before this year’s competition, the first to feature 24 teams, while it is the first time the Republic have made the knockout stages at the Euros.
The last time the Republic of Ireland played France was in 2009, when Thierry Henry handled the ball in the build-up to the deciding goal in a World Cup qualification play-off.
With a population of just 330,000, England’s opponents Iceland are the smallest nation ever to qualify for the tournament.
