Sheffield Wednesday fans react on Twitter to Keiren Westwood's performance for Ireland v England

Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday's Keiren Westwood kept a clean sheet for Ireland against England.

Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper Keiren Westwood made his club supporters proud as he racked up yet another clean sheet, this time for his country.

The 30-year-old was making his 18th international appearance for Republic of Ireland as he started Sunday's friendly match with England.

The Championship goalkeeper went up against England captain Wayne Rooney, who was joined in attack by Raheem Sterling and Adam Lallana.

Westwood played an hour before being substituted for veteran Shay Given, and did not have to face England debutant Jamie Vardy, with the former Wednesday trainee coming on in the 75th minute.

Owls stopper Westwood kept more clean sheets last season for his club than any other goalkeeper in the Championship, and only enhanced his reputation at the weekend, despite England's lacklustre attack.

Despite Given still going strong at the age of 39 and recently featuring in the FA Cup Final for Aston Villa, Westwood appears to be the preferred choice in goal, and judging by his solid displays last season it is hard to argue.

If Sheffield Wednesday are to accomplish their new owner's ambition to achieve promotion next season, keeping hold of the Irishman this summer is a must for the club. 

Here is a look at how Owls fans reacted to his display against England...
