Connolly Misses Out As Ireland Squad For Portugal And Luxembourg Named

Stephen Kenny has named a 26-man squad for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Portugal and Luxembourg.

One of the notable names missing from the squad is Brighton striker Aaron Connolly. Kenny said during a press conference this afternoon that Connolly's absence is due to a heel injury. Harry Arter and Cyrus Christie also miss out.

Captain Seamus Coleman has returned to the squad after he missed the October double-header against Azerbaijan and Qatar through injury.

West Bromwich Albion midfielder Jayson Molumby and Preston North End midfielder Alan Browne both come back into the squad following suspension.

Ireland play Portugal in Dublin on November 11 and then fly to Luxembourg for their final qualifying match on November 14.
