Sunderland defender O'Shea full of praise for Man Utd winger Brady

Sunderland defender John O'Shea is backing Manchester United winger Robbie Brady to continue to impress for the Republic of Ireland.

The 20-year-old, currently in his second loan spell at npower Championship Hull under former United defender Steve Bruce, will start Wednesday night's friendly against Greece at the Aviva Stadium.

O'Shea said: "He got a few more chances then when he went back in, in pre-season and a couple of the League Cup matches.

"It's one of those things. Look, Robbie is a very intelligent lad, he is under no illusions that he is facing a very difficult task.

"But he has got a lot of ability and he has got the talent to back it up, so if he did get a chance to get a run in the Manchester United team, I am sure he would take it with both hands.

"But as I said, he's got a lot of competition."
