Discarded defender Kevin Foley played 45 minutes of Ireland's friendly against a Tuscan XI hours after being told he would not be going to Euro 2012.

The Wolves defender was introduced as a half-time substitute in the 5-0 victory over a Serie C and D representative side put together by Giovanni Trapattoni's former players, Ennio Pellegrini and Aldo Firicano.

Skipper Robbie Keane's first-half double either side of Simon Cox's strike eased the Republic out of sight by the break, and substitutes Shane Long and Jon Walters struck after it to complete the scoring on a night when the result was largely immaterial.
