The Republic of Ireland end their Euro 2012 campaign tonight when they face Italy in Group C.

Ireland boss Giovanni Trapattoni has confirmed his starting line-up for tonight's game ahead of kick-off.

Trapattoni has brought in Kevin Doyle to replace Simon Cox up front in what is the only change to the side that were beaten 4-0 by Spain.

Damien Duff will captain the side to mark his 100th international cap.

Italy have doubts over striker Mario Balotelli (knee). The Manchester City forward trained on Sunday, but could be rested by coach Cessare Prandelli even if he is passed fit to play.

Prandelli is hopeful defender Andrea Barzagli (calf), who has missed the opening two matches, will be passed fit.
