Irish ease to victory
James McClean received the biggest cheer of the night at Craven Cottage, but it was debutant Robbie Brady who stole the show as he scored one and set up two more as the Republic of Ireland comfortably beat Oman 4-1.
Brady is yet to play a match for Manchester United, but he lit up a quiet atmosphere at Tuesday night's friendly in London by crossing for Kevin Doyle's opener early in the first half.
The winger smacked home a volley to make it 2-0 and he set up Shane Long for the Republic's third while Alex Pearce added a fourth after Eid Al-Farsi had scored a consolation goal for Paul Le Guen's side.
