It is being reported that the roof will be closed over the Friends Arena for tomorrow's World Cup qualifier with Sweden.
Ireland boss Giovanni Trapattonni had wanted the roof to remain open despite temperatures reaching as a low as minus 8 degrees.
FIFA will make an official decision tomorrow but a spokesperson has said they are likely to allow the roof to be closed.
Meanwhile, former Irish international Stephen Reid said that Trapattoni has shown a lack of respect to Kevin Doyle by dropping the Wolves striker from his squad via text message.
Reid said: "To be honest it doesn't surprise me. We have had a few incidents of this sort of thing, misunderstandings of Trapattoni's style.
"It doesn't come as a surprise, but for me I would be the same as Kevin, I probably would have expected a phone call, just that little bit of respect for a senior member of your squad."
