Nine players join Republic of Ireland squad ahead of Uruguay friendly

Republic of Ireland manager Martin O'Neill has added nine players to the squad ahead of the friendly against Uruguay at the Aviva on Sunday.

Keiren Westwood, John O'Shea, Robbie Brady, Jeff Hendrick, Glenn Whelan, Harry Arter, Aiden McGeady, Jonny Hayes and Jonathan Walters have come into camp, while Stephen Quinn will link up for training.

The 10 players overall will add to the 19-man panel that travelled to the United States for Thursday's 3-1 friendly defeat to Mexico.

Goalscorer last night Stephen Gleeson has been excused from the squad to attend his wedding.

The newcomers to the squad went through a light training this afternoon in Dublin, while the players who travelled to New Jersey underwent a recovery session.
