Harry Arter Starts! Martin O'Neill Names Ireland Team To Play Austria

Martin O'Neill has named his Ireland team to play Austria in Vienna this evening.

With James McCarthy out injured, Harry Arter wins his fourth cap in midfield. It will be the Bournemouth player's first competitive game for Ireland, completely extinguishing any thought that he may switch allegiance to England.

Stephen Ward is also out through injury. So Robbie Brady will play at left-back rather than the more attacking role which he has had in recent games.

Despite being an injury worry during the week, James McClean starts the game.


Here's the starting XI.

Darren Randolph, Seamus Coleman (c), Ciaran Clark, Shane Duffy, Robbie Brady, Jeff Hendrick, Harry Arter, Glenn Whelan, James McClean, Wes Hoolahan, Jonathan Walters

Here's the bench.



Andy Boyle, Stephen Gleeson, Jonny Hayes and Adam Rooney are the players omitted from the matchday 23.

Ireland go into the game in second place in Group D on seven points, just behind Serbia on goal difference.

Kick-off is at 5pm.
