The Republic of Ireland's away Euro 2016 qualifier against Gibraltar on 4 September 2015 will be played in the Portuguese city of Faro.

With Gibraltar's home venue still being redeveloped, they played their first home qualifier against Poland in Faro last month when they were defeated 7-0.

The minnows were then hammered 7-0 by the Republic in Dublin before losing 3-0 against Georgia in Faro.

They will also host Germany [13 June] and Scotland [11 October] in Faro.

Gibraltar's Football Association said on its official Facebook page that financial and security concerns over continued usage of the stadium had been resolved.

There had been speculation that Gibraltar's remaining home Group D matches could be played in London, but the GFA has now confirmed that the team will continue to use the Estadio do Algarve.
