To be fair, I only caught the first 20 minutes of tonight's Ireland vs. Brazil "glamour friendly", and the Brazillian goal didn't happen until the 65th minute, but all I saw of Ireland in those 20 minutes was the same old show: everyone passes the ball up the right wing to Duff, who gets cornered by minimum two defenders, and punts a wild shot across the goalmouth; alternatively, everyone plays backwards down the right wing, across the goalmouth, and then back up to Duff again; for variation, the ball is sent to Robbie Keane, after which it's anyone's guess - including Robbie's - where it will end up as he flays at it wildly; and Shay Given continues to be the saviour of the team for as long as he can.

The only thing that did surprise me was that some of the visitors fell over easier than Duff usually does.
