Thursday sees the Republic of Ireland take on Northern Ireland for the first time in a non-closed-door games since 2011, when the Republic beat the North 5-0 at the Aviva Stadium on their way to lifting the Carling Nations Cup.

Republic of Ireland manager Martin O'Neill represented Northern Ireland at two World Cups - but the date will have more significance than that for the Derryman.

For November 15th, 2013 was the date on which O'Neill managed Ireland for the first time, in a home friendly against Latvia - Thursday marks five years in charge.

Ireland won 3-0 (we won't tell you the scorers) - but can you name the starting XI and all six substitutes that day? 

We've broken it down by position and each player's club at the time of the game.
