Republic of Ireland sell tickets using photos of players who won’t be playing

Which one of these people will be at Thomond Park, Limerick, tonight?

Someone in the FAI marketing team has been watching re-runs of Bullseye because *clears throat* this is what you could have won… if you had bought tickets to a World Cup qualifier instead of a friendly.

Republic of Ireland fans who print off the FAI’s ticket-flogging home page and take it along to their match against South Africa tonight will notice that the two players being used to promote the game – Shay Given and Robbie Keane – are conspicuously missing. Along with Richard Dunne, Kevin Kilbane and Stephen Hunt.
