France drawn with Ireland in Euro rehearsal
"That gave us a laugh but certainly ... I would welcome it, why not?," Platini joked after France, among the top seeds, and Ireland, ranked in the third pot, were placed in the same group.
France defeated Ireland 2-1 on aggregate in a hugely controversial World Cup play-off last November.
Thierry Henry handled the ball twice in the build-up to France's second-leg goal scored by William Gallas - an incident that led to renewed calls for video technology to be used in top matches.
