We would all have loved the chance to watch the Republic of Ireland's clash with Northern Ireland at the Aviva Stadium on Thursday, but the 'secret' friendly was only witnessed by a chosen few.

The behind-closed-doors match ended in a 0-0 draw and while we are left to guess a little what might have happened, here at the view of Republic of Ireland boss Martin O'Neill on his side's run-out.

Robbie Brady also offered his verdict on the game, as he hoped to push his claims to be included in O'Neill's side for Sunday's high profile friendly against England at the Aviva Stadium.
