Martin O’Neill has named a mixture of regular starters and fringe squad players in his team for Ireland’s penultimate Euro 2016 warm-up game against the Netherlands, writes Stephen Barry.
It will be a last chance for many to stake a claim for inclusion in O’Neill’s final squad of 23, which will be finalised on Tuesday.
Shane Duffy, man-of-the-match in the Good Friday friendly against Switzerland, gets the nod at centre-back alongside John O’Shea, who is given game-time after playing much of the season from the bench at Sunderland.
In midfield, Bournemouth’s Harry Arter gets his second Ireland cap, alongside Glenn Whelan and Stephen Quinn, who is also given a chance to impress in the absence of the injured James McCarthy.
Ipswich attacker David McGoldrick makes his third start in green on the wing. Irish Player of the Year Jon Walters lines up on the opposite flank, with Shane Long leading the line.
Darren Randolph will start between the posts, with regular starters Seamus Coleman and Robbie Brady filling the full-back berths.
Dundalk goalkeeper Gary Rogers is named among the subs and, like Oxford’s Callum O’Dowda, could make his international debut tonight.
Subs: Given (GK), Rogers (GK), O'Kane, Keogh, McGeady, Keane, McClean, Christie, Ward, Hoolahan, Murphy, O'Dowda, Hendrick, Gibson. #COYBIG— FAIreland ⚽️🇮🇪 (@FAIreland) May 27, 2016
Kick-off at the Aviva Stadium is 7.45pm.
