Leanne Kiernan made her return to international football while Niamh Fahey was named Player of the Match as the Republic of Ireland drew 0-0 with Italy on Friday.

Liverpool FC Women striker Kiernan, who received her first call-up since missing last year’s World Cup due to injury for February’s fixtures, had a goal ruled out for offside shortly after coming off the bench on the hour mark of the friendly in Florence.

Reds captain Fahey, meanwhile, started and finished the game and was then recognised as its outstanding performer.

Elsewhere on Friday, Marie Höbinger played 77 minutes of Austria’s 7-2 friendly loss to England.
