Republic of Ireland coach Giovanni Trapattoni has been impressed by Manchester United youngster Robbie Brady in training.

Brady joined up with the senior squad for the first time this week.

"He's a type of player we are missing," said Trapattoni. "He has vision, can pass and can shoot, like James McCarthy but he has other midfield work like Meyler. Brady sees the pass immediately, he has the pitch in front of him, he can pass and shoot, he is intelligent and clever."
