Brazil forward Robinho enjoyed a happy return to England by setting up one and scoring another in the 2-0 friendly victory over Republic of Ireland at the Emirates Stadium.

The 26-year-old, loaned to Santos in January after his disappointing season at Manchester City, crossed just before the break for Keith Andrews to turn into his own goal, then he added the second himself in the second period.

It was Ireland's first match since Thierry Henry's "handball" in Paris that ended their hopes of reaching the World Cup, while Dunga used the match to put the finishing touches on preparations for South Africa.
