Brazilians sparkle at the Emirates

Arsenal handed over the keys to the Emirates to Brazil last night for an International friendly with the Republic Of Ireland.

It was the first time Ireland had played since the disappointment of failing to qualify for the World Cup, thanks to Thierry Henry's handball which won the play off for France.

Wolves striker Kevin Doyle lined up alongside Tottenham and Celtic's Robbie Keane, while Brazil lined up with Adriano, Robinho, Kaka.

Both sides made it competitive, although at times it felt like a pre season friendly with the lack of atmosphere in the ground.

Kevin Doyle had Ireland's best chance of the match, but his glancing header was saved by Inter Milan Keeper Julio Cesar.

Brazil took the lead when Keith Andrews put the ball past Shay Given from a Robinho cross.

One day he will be able to tell his grandkiddies that he scored for Brazil the ITV1 commentator said. Which made me chuckle.

Robinho eventually got his own goal and was immediately substituted. Ironically, the same happened in his last game for Manchester City, although the back drop of the Emirates is slightly more glamorous than Scunthorpe.

It will probably be the last that we see of Robinho in this country, which going from this performance will be a shame.

With 15 minutes remaining Kevin Doyle was replaced by Newcastle striker Leon Best. As expected when playing against Brazil, Doyle's chances were limited, but he worked hard and will be pleased with his performance.
