Shay Given opted to hang up his international gloves this week, ending a 16-year career, and Trapattoni said the Aston Villa goalkeeper would still make himself available if there was an “emergency”.
Trapattoni, however, said he would use the Serbia friendly as a chance to give some of Ireland’s young prospects a chance to impress ahead of the 2014 World Cup qualifying campaign.
“Shay told me he would make himself available in case of an emergency, but it is yet to be seen what the other senior players will decide,” Trapattoni said.
“Of course, I would like to have all of them at my disposal for the opening World Cup qualifiers against Kazakhstan and Germany, but the very purpose of the friendly against Serbia is also to see how well the youngsters can replace them.”
