Bohemians goalkeeper Brian Murphy has been called into the Republic of Ireland squad for the World Cup play-off with France following Kieren Westwood's withdrawal.
Coventry ace Westwood has been forced to withdraw through injury and Murphy has been drafted in as his replacement.
Murphy, along with Scunthorpe's Joe Murphy, will provide back-up to Shay Given, who is in line to win his 101st cap against France at Croke Park next Saturday.
Giovanni Trapattoni's men will then travel to Paris for the return leg at the Stade de France on Wednesday, 18th November with a place at next summer's World Cup finals in South Africa at stake.
