Ireland Name New Look Starting Team For Turkey Match

Ireland Name New Look Starting Team For Turkey Match

Ireland have named their starting line-up for this evening's match against Turkey. A year on from his leg break, the great news is that Seamus Coleman returns to side, as captain. Declan Rice and Scott Hogan will earn their first cap, while red-hot Seani Maguire makes his first international start.

The back four would appear to be Coleman, Shane Duffy, Keving Long and Declan Rice. Although Rice is wearing number 10 and given O'Neill's proclivity for doing something mad, who knows what way we'll line up!

Colin Doyle starts in goals, 11 years on from his first and only cap to date, while it will be interesting to see Alan Browne and Conor Hourihane get some decent game time. We also have James McClean and Jeff Hendrick but know what to expect from the lads.

The match kicks of at 5.30pm and is live on RTÉ.
