Shay Given will start in the Republic of Ireland's friendly against Nigeria tomorrow night at Craven Cottage. The Man City goalkeeper had taken a slight knock to the hip during the week but has been passed fit for the London warm-up to next week's World Cup qualifier against Bulgaria. Giovanni Trapattoni is also handing first starts to five new players. Leon Best will partner skipper Robbie Keane up front as expected, with Sean St. Ledger and Eddie Nolan from Preston North End, Wolves Kevin Foley, and Stoke winger Liam Lawrence all in the starting line up.
