Robbie Keane will lead the Republic of Ireland into friendly battle with England tomorrow less than 36 hours after his latest trans-Atlantic dash.
The 32-year-old striker will win his 124th senior international cap at Wembley having only landed in London from Los Angles this morning.
However, there will be no place in the team for Stoke defender Marc Wilson, who has a calf problem with Reading’s Stephen Kelly starting at left-back.
Jon Walters will line up on the right side of midfield with Spartak Moscow’s Aiden McGeady on the left.
Team to play England: David Forde; Seamus Coleman, John O’Shea, Sean St Ledger, Stephen Kelly; Jon Walters, James McCarthy, Glenn Whelan, Aiden McGeady; Shane Long, Robbie Keane (Capt).
