Is with plural noun

Can I use "is" in the question, when any is followed by a countable plural noun?

Is any of your friends play football.
Is there any issues.

Thanks you in advance,

    I don't think this is grammatical in any dialect or variety of English.

    Is there any issues.

    This is certainly ungrammatical in Standard English, but hearers would understand, and they might not notice the ungrammaticality. It's the sort of sentence that results when a speaker starts with one sort of ending in mind but then forgets.

    Is there ... often starts a question.
    Is any... sometimes starts a question.
    Is any of PLURAL... never starts a question.
