England internationals and FA Cup ties will be shown live by ITV, the Football Association has revealed.

The Football Association have confirmed that they have reached an agreement with ITV for the broadcaster to continue to screen England matches.

ITV will now show home and away England internationals up until the end of the 2014 season.

The new contract will also allow ITV to have first choice of FA Cup ties, a deal which is shared with ESPN.

"The FA Cup and England internationals are events with huge resonance and appeal for our viewers," said ITV director of television Peter Fincham.

"I'm delighted that we are extending our partnership with The FA and that ITV1 will continue to be the home of live football on free-to-air television."
