Trapattoni names Ireland squad for Sweden and Austria games
Giovanni Trapattoni has named a provisional 29-man squad for the Republic of Ireland’s upcoming World Cup qualifiers with Sweden and Austria.
Defenders Richard Dunne and Joey O’Brien return to the panel, while Anthony Pilkington and David Forde will be hoping to be fit enough to make the final 23-man squad.
Paddy Madden is retained in attack after impressing on his debut against Wales, but there is no room for Wolves striker Kevin Doyle, who is yet to make a move away from the League One club.
Provisional 29-man squad: Forde, Westwood, Randolph, O’Shea, O’Brien, St Ledger, Wilson, Coleman, Kelly, O’Dea, Clark, Dunne, McShane, Whelan,
McCarthy, Green, Hendrick, McGeady, Pilkington, McClean, Brady, Meyler,
Hoolahan, Long, Keane, Sammon, Walters, Madden, Cox.
