  • Tomorrow's game at Páirc Uí Chaoimh is a sell-out

Former Celtic, Manchester United, Sunderland and Hibernian player Miller, who earned 21 Republic of Ireland caps, died in February at the age of 36 from cancer. "Its is a credit to everyone who bought a ticket for today's game to support Liam's family and pay tribute to him today".

With just 24 hours to go until kick-off, the teams have been revealed by an unlikely source.

Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane returned to a football pitch in a United jersey during Tuesday's Liam Miller tribute match in Cork.

The United team includes a host of Premier League legends, with Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Rio Ferdinand, Andy Cole and Gary Neville all travelling to Cork.

Judge puts Yellowstone grizzly bears back on the endangered list
Instead, it turned strictly on his determination that the Fish and Wildlife Service had exceeded its authority. The order came as Wyoming and Idaho were on the cusp of allowing up to 23 bears to be killed by hunters.

Celtic/Republic of Ireland Legends: David Forde, Stephen Carr, Kevin Kilbane, Kenny Cunningham, Richard Dunne, Keith Andrews, Stephen McPhail, Andy Reid, Kevin Doyle, John Hartson, Robbie Keane, Damien Duff, Ian Harte, Paul Lambert, Graham Kavanagh, Stylian Petrov, Colin Healy, Shaun Maloney, Johan Mjällby.

Unfortunately, Ronny Johnsen, Lee Carsley, Neil Lennon and Shane Supple will not be involved despite being included in last month's provisional squad list.

All profits from the match will be donated to Marymount Hospice and other charities, along with Miller's wife Clare and their three children.

O'Neill and Keane will be looking forward to the break from focus on the Ireland squad, after more injury woes came to the fore in recent days with the news that John Walters could be a doubt for next month's must-win games at home to Denmark and Wales.
