Martin O'Neill Names Squad For Crucial Euro 2016 Qualifiers

Martin O'Neill Names Squad For Crucial Euro 2016 Qualifiers
By Barry Arnold Updated

Martin O’Neill has named his provisional 37-man Republic of Ireland squad of the upcoming Euro 2016 qualifiers double-header against Gibraltar and Georgia.

There are some notable absentees as Crystal Palace defender Damien Delaney was not included as well as the continued non-selection of Stephen Ireland and Jack Grealish.

Bournemouth midfielder Eunan O'Kane has earned a first international call-up for Ireland as Brentford's Alan Judge is given a chance for a first cap. Preston defender Greg Cunningham also has been given an opportunity for his first cap since 2013.

The Boys in Green currently sit fourth in Group D after a 1-1 draw with Scotland in June. Ireland are four points from a playoff spot with second-place Germany a point behind group-toppers Poland, who have 14 points.


Ireland travel to Gibraltar on the 4th of September before returning to Dublin to host Georgia at the Aviva Stadium three days later. Nothing less than six points will do for Martin O’Neill’s side to have a chance of qualification.

Republic of Ireland 37-man provisional squad for the Euro2016 Qualification Group D matches against Gibraltar and Georgia:


Goalkeepers: Shay Given, Keiren Westwood, David Forde, Darren Randolph, Rob Elliot.

Defenders: John O'Shea, Ciaran Clark, Richard Keogh, Alex Pearce, Mark Wilson, Seamus Coleman, Cyrus Christie, Paul McShane, Stephen Ward, Greg Cunningham.

Midfielders: James McCarthy, Glenn Whelan, Aiden McGeady, Robbie Brady, David Meyler, Wes Hoolahan, Stephen Quinn, James McClean, Jeff Hendrick, Harry Arter, Alan Judge, Eunan O'Kane, Anthony Pilkington.


Strikers: Shane Long, Robbie Keane, Daryl Murphy, David McGoldrick, Jon Walters, Kevin Doyle, Anthony Stokes, Adam Rooney, Simon Cox.
