Nice top! when is it released?

Is it possible to get it without the 'eircon' logo?

11th March. They will be wearing it for the Brazil game.

I'm pretty sure none of them will have 'eircon' on it, but the replica ones will have 'Eircom' on them  ;)

Ireland are the only country to have a sponsor on their replica jersey.

eircon is the slang for eircom hence the use of ' '

Robbie Keane has joined the Republic of Ireland squad ahead of Tuesday's friendly against Brazil in London after recovering from a knee problem.

The striker was initially ruled out after aggravating the injury in Celtic's loss to Rangers on Sunday.

Aston Villa defender Richard Dunne is out after sustaining an unspecified muscle injury in Sunday's Carling Cup final defeat by Manchester United.

He looks certain to be replaced by Hull City's Paul McShane.

Republic boss Giovanni Trapattoni will make a late decision about whether to start with Keane or Newcastle's Leon Best alongside Kevin Doyle of Wolves.

Wigan's James McCarthy, Portsmouth's Marc Wilson and Manchester City's Greg Cunningham could all be given their Republic senior debuts at some stage in the game.


The match will see both goalkeeper Shay Given and left-back Kevin Kilbane set a new record of 103 appearances for the Republic.

Keane will notch his 96th international appearance if he plays.

Brazil coach Dunga left AC Milan pair Ronaldinho and Pato out of his squad while Sevilla striker Luis Fabiano is ruled out by injury.

Dunga called up Wolfsburg's Grafite and Hoffenheim midfielder Carlos Eduardo as replacements while Adriano, Nilmar, Robinho, Kaka, Elano and Julio Baptista are also in the Brazil squad.

The match at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium against the Republic is Brazil's last scheduled friendly before the World Cup finals in South Africa begin in June.




Great to see real players like Keane who love playing for their country. Who says international football is dead?

Paul McShane should never be allowed to pull on the green jersey again. >:(
