Coventry City goalkeeper Joe Murphy was an unused substitute during Republic of Ireland's goalless draw with Italy.

The City keeper was on the bench for Martin O'Neill's side as Millwall keeper David Forde kept a clean sheet at Craven Cottage.

Italy, England's first opponents at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, failed to break down the Irish side and suffered a further blow when Ricardo Montolivo sustained a broken leg meaning he is out for the World Cup.
