Giovanni Trapattoni has drafted Brian Murphy into his Republic of Ireland squad for next week's game against Brazil.
The Ipswich goalkeeper, 26, has been called up following the withdrawal of Scunthorpe's Joe Murphy with a wrist problem.
He joins Manchester City's Shay Given and Keiren Westwood of Coventry in the squad for the clash at Emirates Stadium on Tuesday.
Brazil, meanwhile, will be without Luis Fabiano for the match after he pulled out with a stomach injury.
The Brazilian Football Confederation announced that the same injury had prevented Fabiano from playing for Sevilla in their UEFA Champions League match against CSKA Moscow on Wednesday.
The encounter in London is Brazil's only scheduled warm-up before their World Cup opener against North Korea on 15th June.
Dunga's side also face Ivory Coast and Portugal in a difficult Group G.
