Irish Team To Face Northern Ireland Named By Martin O'Neill
By Gavin Cooney Updated

Martin O'Neill has named the Republic of Ireland team to face Northern Ireland in tonight's friendly international at the Aviva Stadium.

As expected, Glenn Whelan captains the side on what will be his 85th and final international appearance. Robbie Brady returns for his first appearance in a year, with starts also for John Egan, Darragh Lenihan, and Callum Robinson.

Formation-wise it is difficult to tell, but it may well be a 3-5-2 with Coleman and McClean as wing-backs, Egan, Lenihan and Duffy at centre-back, Whelan, Hendrick and Brady in the middle with O'Dowda pushing up in support of Callum Robinson.
