Ireland manager Steve Staunton has named a 23-man squad on Tuesday for next week’s Euro 2008 Group D qualifier against San Marino.
Ireland meet San Marino at Lansdowne Road in what is expected to be the last international soccer match at the ground before its redevelopment.
Stephen Carr, Andy O’Brien, Aiden McGeady, Kevin Doyle, Stephen Ireland and Stephen Elliot return after injury with Richard Dunne back after suspension. Lee Carsley and Stephen Kelly retain their places in the squad after being late call-ups for the game against the Czechs.
“It is good to have so many of the players who missed the game against the Czech Republic back but the young players who played so well that night have ensured that I will have serious choices to make when it comes to selecting the team,” said Republic manager Steve Staunton.
