Trap names team to face Sweden… almost

Republic of Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni has provisionally included Robbie Brady in the team to play Sweden in the Republic of Ireland’s World Cup Qualifier in Sweden tomorrow.

As expected, Paul Green will line out in the centre of midfield alongside Glenn Whelan, as James McCarthy must content himself with a place on the bench.

Relative newcomer Brady is also included, as long as Trap feels the player is "psychologically ready".

A final decision will be made tonight, with Andy Keogh due to start in his place if Brady is not deemed ready to play.

Robbie Keane will pick up his 123rd cap with Shane Long partnering him in attack.

Republic of Ireland team v Sweden: Forde, Wilson, Clark, O'Shea, Coleman, Green, Whelan, Brady (TBC), McClean, Keane, Long.
