Republic of Ireland's Robbie Brady avoids punishment from FIFA

Republic of Ireland midfielder Robbie Brady is free to play in the World Cup playoffs after avoiding a suspension for an alleged headbutt.

FIFA has revealed that Republic of Ireland midfielder Robbie Brady will face no further action for an alleged headbutt.

During the World Cup qualifier with Wales, video footage showed Brady pushing his head into the body of Ashley Williams after a challenge from the Welsh captain.

The incident was missed by the referee, but an investigation was launched to determine whether Brady should be suspended for his nation's two-legged playoff next month.

However, FIFA has decided against banning the left-sided player for a tie against either Switzerland, Italy, Croatia or Denmark.

The 25-year-old has netted seven goals in 37 appearances for the Green Army since making his debut in 2012.
