Richard Dunne was happy as the Republic of Ireland extended their unbeaten run to 14 matches with a 0-0 draw in Hungary in their final match before Euro 2012

Goalkeeper Shay Given played a crucial role as Giovanni Trapattoni's team kept another clean sheet following last month's 1-0 victory against Bosnia and also proved his fitness.

The Aston Villa goalkeeper made three outstanding saves to deny Dinamo Moscow midfielder Balazs Dzsudzsak before being replaced by Keiren Westwood at half-time.

Ireland, who are 3.75 to beat Croatia in their Euro 2012 opener on Sunday, were a little fortunate to take a draw from the match, but Dunne said afterwards: "We were always confident and are happy to come away with a draw.

"We didn't pull out of any tackles but happily we did not have any injuries.

"It was arranged that Shay Given would come off at half-time. Goalkeeper is a specialist position and others have to get game time."

The Republic are 81.00 to win Euro 2012, while England can be backed at 15.00 and Spain at 3.75.
