EURO 2012 squad named
Giovanni Trapattoni today (May 7) announced a 23 man squad to face Bosnia in the 'Three International Friendly' on May 26 in Aviva Stadium, and later travel to Poland for EURO 2012.
Making the announcement, the Republic of Ireland manager said, "I had a very difficult task in choosing this 23 man squad. Several players have proven their abilities to us during the qualifying campaign, and we are thankful to all who have played a part. However, we are happy with our choices.
"The standby list consists of very capable players who we would be happy to call upon if needed. The game against Bosnia in Aviva stadium will be the beginning of our EURO 2012 journey and it is important for the players to feel the energy from Irish fans before we go to our training camp."
