Republic of Ireland caretaker manager Don Givens has called on his players to show some pride to ensure they end a dismal European qualifying campaign on a high.

Givens takes charge for Saturday´s final Group D encounter against Wales at the Millennium Stadium following the recent departure of Steve Staunton.

"What´s done is done as far as qualification for the championships are concerned, so now we are obviously hoping to finish the campaign with a positive result," he said.
