Former Republic of Ireland manager Jack Charlton is introduced to the crowd before the game.

Perhaps the most exciting moment of today's international friendly occurred before kick-off when former Ireland manager Jack Charlton was presented to the crowd.

Martin O'Neill's side played out a largely forgettable draw against England, with focus now switching quickly to next Saturday's crunch qualifier against Scotland in Dublin.

Before the game got underway, Ireland's most successful manager was introduced to the crowd and his popularity was clear for all to see with both sets of supporters rising to their feet for the 1966 World Cup winner who led Ireland to a European Championship and two World Cups.
