Extractions: Shay Given World Cup Profile Factfile Club: Newcastle (Eng) Country: Republic of Ireland Born: April 20, 1976, in Lifford Previous clubs: Celtic (Sco), Blackburn (Eng) International debut: April 1996, v Czech Republic International caps: Honours: English Premier League 1995 (Blackburn) Shay Given's contribution to the Republic of Ireland's World Cup hopes this summer cannot be underestimated. His superlative displays against Iran in last November's playoffs were typical of his form this season and instrumental in securing his country's third finals appearance in four attempts. Yet Given admits he was happy just to leave Tehran's 120,000-capacity Azadi stadium in one piece. He explains: "As I warmed up behind the goal with my fellow keepers Dean Kiely and Alan Kelly, smoke bombs were going off all around us. It wasn't until we got back to the dressing-room that we discovered that the devices were in fact live grenades. When the smoke had cleared, you could see craters left in the ground, so we were very lucky not to be hurt. Find out more about World Soccer magazine's online subscription offer.

Extractions: Newcastle United 'keeper Shay Given has received the all-clear to line out for the Republic of Ireland against Denmark tomorrow week, despite his dislocated finger. Now Given is set to take over in goal from Alan Kelly and claim his 27th senior cap. The Donegalman was back in training yesterday after dislocating his little finger in the Premiership match against Charlton. "I have had the hand X-rayed and there is no permanent damage, nothing broken," said Given. "The finger is taped up and it's still a little bit sore, but it's nothing that would prevent me from playing." The 24-year-old has had to bide his time since losing his Ireland jersey to Kelly at the start of the season and then relinquishing his Newcastle place to Steve Harper. A month ago things looked black for him when he slapped in a transfer request at his club - but that's all changed now. He returned to the Magpies first team three games ago when Harper suffered a groin injury and is now set to win back his Ireland place. Kelly played in the three World Cup qualifiers to date but has not featured in the Blackburn first team for three months and Ireland boss Mick McCarthy has no option but to examine his alternatives. Given was in goal for Ireland's last outing, against Finland, and will retain his jersey for the visit of the Danes.
