Keiren Westwood got an international run out today in a behind-closed-doors game at the Aviva Stadium, Dublin.
The Sheffield Wednesday keeper started in goal for the Republic of Ireland in a training match against Northern Ireland, keeping a clean sheet as the sides drew 0-0.
He was replaced at half time, when the Republic fielded a completely different team for the second half.
It was the the Owls’ player of the year’s first appearance for the Republic since a 3-0 win over Latvia in November 2013 - Martin O’Neill’s first match in charge - though this is not an officially sanctioned international.
The Republic will now play England in a friendly in Dublin on Sunday and then have a qualifier against Scotland next week.
Meanwhile, Northern Ireland, who have Sheffield Wednesday striker Caolan Lavery in their squad, take on Romania in Belfast next weekend.
