Martin O'Neill has named a provisional 40-man squad for Republic of Ireland's UEFA Euro 2016 Group D qualifier against Germany in Aviva Stadium on Thursday, October 8, and the UEFA Euro 2016 Group D qualifier against Poland in Narodowy Stadium, Warsaw on Sunday, October 11.
17th Sep 2015

Today’s provisional squad announcement sees the inclusion of Everton’s Darron Gibson, who has returned to training from injury, and the uncapped trio of Alan Judge, Eunan O’Kane, and Adam Rooney.

The squad will be shortened ahead of assembling on October 4.

Speaking at today's press conference in FAI HQ, Ireland manager O’Neill said, “After collecting six points from our last two qualifying games, we want to keep the momentum going and continue to push towards sealing qualification from what has proved to be a very difficult group.

"We couldn't have two more difficult games ahead in the shape of World champions Germany at home and in-form Poland in Warsaw."

Tickets are currently on general sale for the Germany game through www.ticketmaster.ie and are also available through clubs and leagues. See fai.ie for details.
