England will now face the Republic of Ireland in a friendly at Wembley next month after New Zealand pulled out of their tie due to Covid restrictions.
Ireland will travel to London on 12 November to face the Gareth Southgate coached side and it will be the first meeting between the sides in five years; the last meeting between the two sides ending in a scoreless draw in Dublin.
After the Ireland friendly, England will complete their Nations League campaign with fixtures against Denmark and Iceland when Ireland will be up against Wales away and Bulgaria at home in the UEFA Nations League.
The last clash between the two sides in Wembley that came in 2013 also ended in a 1-1 draw.
