Two additions to U-21 squad

Two additions to U-21 squad

Two more Airtricity League players have been drafted into the Republic of Ireland Under-21 squad ahead of tomorrow’s UEFA European Championship qualifier against Turkey.

Shane McEleney (Derry City) and Daniel Kearns (Dundalk) will link-up with the squad later today and will strengthen a squad which has been hit by injury and suspension.

Five members of the squad returned to their clubs following last Friday’s match against Switzerland in Lugano. Anthony Stokes and Eddie Nolan were both booked in that match, which ruled them out of Tuesday’s game in Turkey, while Alan Judge (groin), Gavin Gunning (groin) and Shane O’Connor (hamstring) all picked-up injuries.

Paddy Madden (Bohemians), Seamus Conneely (Galway United) and Karl Sheppard (Galway United) have already linked up with the squad and they will be joined later today by McEleney and Kearns.
