Michael Owen – see the “Bumper 10 days for EMO” article.

Alan Smith – no involvement in either game for McClaren`s side.

Emre – Turkey won 3-0 and our portly playmaker lasted for the second half. He`ll no doubt be out with some mystery ailment until Turkey`s internationals next month.

David Rozenhal – 90 minutes a clean sheet and composed performance against the ROI for our Czech stopper.

Shay Given – no fairytale come back in the two games he`s played. The 2-2 v Slovakia and 1-0 loss yesterday v Rozenhal`s Czech side means that the only significance of the games was him overhauling Packie Bonner`s caps total.
