The FAI has released the dates for the Republic of Ireland's June friendlies against Andorra and Hungary.

Stephen Kenny revealed earlier this week that the two games would form part of a summer training camp in Spain.

The Boys in Green will face Andorra at the Estadi Nacional on Thursday, June 3rd (6pm) and then will play Hungary on June 8th but the venue and kick-off time is yet to be confirmed.

Kenny will use the games as preparation for the World Cup qualifiers against Portugal and Azerbaijan in September.

The Andorra game will also be a chance for the Ireland boss to get a first win since replacing Mick McCarthy last year.

Ireland are bottom of Group A in their World Cup qualifying campign following defeats to Serbia and Luxembourg before they drew 1-1 with World Cup hosts Qatar on Tuesday night.

It will also give Kenny the chance to get a sustained amount of time on the training ground as he tries to integrate several younger players into the senior squad.
