The Republic of Ireland have lined up friendlies against Sweden and Holland as they turn their sights to the start of the Euro 2008 qualifying matches.

The Swedes will visit Lansdowne Road on Wednesday, 1 March with Holland due in Dublin on 16 August.

Both countries have qualified for the 2006 World Cup finals in Germany.

The Irish team's failure to qualify cost manager Brian Kerr his job in October and the FAI has still to name his successor.

Ireland last played the Dutch in a friendly in Amsterdam in June 2004 when a Robbie Keane strike earned Kerr's side a 1-0 win.
