O’Neill Names Squad For Busy June Period

Republic of Ireland manager Martin O’Neill has named a 38 man squad for next month’s international fixtures against Mexico, Uruguay and Austria.

There’s one new inclusion, with Burnley defender Kevin Long called up to the senior squad for the first time just a few weeks after making his first Premier League start.

Among the other players to feature include Liam Kelly, Adam Rooney, Matt Doherty and John Egan.


Those games will act as preparation for the World Cup qualifier against Austria which takes place the following week on June 11th.

Tonight Stamford Bridge plays host to a London derby as the newly crowned champions Chelsea take on Watford.

Kick off is at 8pm.
