Shane Duffy is a full Republic of Ireland international after making his senior debut for his country in a friendly with Costa Rica yesterday.

The 22 year-old Everton defender has been a regular for Ireland's U21s for a while now but made his senior bow in Philadelphia in a 1-1 draw that was a World Cup warm-up game for the Central Americans.

Celso Borges cancelled out Kevin Doyle's opener with a second-half penalty and Robbie Keane later missed the chance to win the match from the spot.

Costa Rica played the second period with 10 men after Giancarlo Gonzalez was sent off for elbowing Doyle. The Blues' other representative in the squad, winger Aiden McGeady, came on for the last 22 minutes.
