Republic of Ireland: Player ratings

Shay Given - 7
Kicking was calm and collected and he helped to calm his defenders with some judicious advice on occasion. Had to travel a long distance to cut out one or two dangerous crosses and handled well
John O'Shea - 8
After Saturday's sloppy display, a much improved performance from the Manchester United man. It was his interception which paved the way for the opening goal. Missed another glorious opportunity to score in Paris
Aiden McGeady - 6
(On for Lawrence. 107) The last throw of the dice but again the frustrating lack of an end product proved to be his downfall

How each individual in the Republic of Ireland team fared in the World Cup play-off against France in Paris.
