Same team for Trapattoni

Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni has named an unchanged squad for the Republic of Ireland's crunch World Cup qualifier against Cyprus on September 5.

Trapattoni's keping the faith with the same players who were beaten 3-0 by Australia in a recent friendly.

The Republic's chances look good as they have been unbeaten so far but they must win in Cyprus to keep their 2010 campaign on track.

They're a point adrift of the leaders Italy who they will face at home in October along with Monenegro.

Ireland won the home leg against Cyprus 1 - 0 after an early strike by Robbie Keane last October at Croke Park so the fans will be hoping for a repeat of that early lead in Nicosia.

Squad: Given (Manchester City), Westwood (Coventry), Murphy (Scunthorpe), O'Shea (Manchester United), Foley (Wolves), Dunne (Manchester City), Kelly (Fulham), Kilbane (Hull), Nolan, St Ledger (both Preston); McGeady (Celtic), Duff (Fulham), Gibson (Manchester United), Whelan (Stoke), Andrews (Blackburn), Miller (unattached), Hunt (Hull), Andy Keogh (Wolves), Lawrence (Stoke); Folan (Hull), Doyle (Wolves), Keane (Tottenham), Long (Reading), Best (Coventry).
