Bournemouth midfielder named in O'Neill's squad for Poland clash

Martin O'Neill has named Bournemouth midfielder Harry Arter in the Republic of Ireland provisional squad for the Euro 2016 Group D Qualifier against Poland.

The 25-year-old was a regular for the Ireland U17 and U19 teams, but this is his first call-up for the senior squad.

Arter has scored six times for Bournemouth in their battle for promotion to the Premier League this season and the fact he is a permanent fixture in the Cherries' midfield has earned him a chance at international level.

Republic of Ireland manager Martin O’Neill said: "We have reached a very important time in our qualifying campaign.

"I am looking forward to assembling the squad for the first time this year in preparation for this game."
