Senior Squad reduced for upcoming contests…13/11/2018

Manager Martin O’Neill has announced his revised senior squad for the upcoming contests with Northern Ireland and Denmark. Twenty eight players were involved in training at Abbotstown this morning with U19 captain Lee O’Connor of Manchester United being amongst that number, but purely for training purposes only. Glenn Whelan will lead Ireland in his farewell appearance in the friendly against Northern Ireland on Thursday evening before departing the scene. Matt Doherty, named in the revised squad, has not yet joined the Group and is receiving treatment at his club Wolves following a head injury incurred in their draw at Arsenal on Sunday afternoon. Teenagers Caoimhin Kelleher and Michael Obafemi have both been retained. Injury ruled out Shane Long and Derrick Williams while Sean McDermott, Ciaran Clark, Greg Cunningham, Jimmy Dunne, Ryan Manning and Richie Towell have been jettisoned from the provisional squad announced last week.
