Mick McCarthy Names 30-Man Provisional Ireland Squad For Euro 2020 Qualifiers
By PJ Browne Updated

Mick McCarthy has named a 30-man provisional squad for the Euro 2020 qualifiers against Denmark and Gibraltar next month.

The squad sees much stronger forward options than McCarthy had for the March games against Gibraltar and Georgia.

Callum Robinson has returned from injury, as has Shane Long. Goalscoring midfielder Alan Browne has also returned from injury.

Shamrock Rovers midfielder Jack Byrne has again been called up but there is no place in the squad for Everton's James McCarthy.

Mick McCarthy will revise the squad following the English league playoff games which see Conor Hourihane, Glenn Whelan, Richard Keogh, Josh Cullen and Ronan Curtis involved.

Ireland will train for a week in Portugal from May 21st before returning to Ireland ahead of the games against Denmark in Copenhagen on June 7th and Gibraltar in Dublin on June 10th.
