The Republic of Ireland squad has been finalised for the UEFA Nations League opener against Wales (September 6) and the international friendly with Poland (September 11).

Injuries have ruled out James McCarthy (leg), Robbie Brady (ankle), Scott Hogan (groin), Sean Maguire (hamstring) and Shane Long (foot), while Kieran O'Hara will link up with the Under-21s for two crucial qualifiers against Kosovo and Germany.

Both goalkeeper Sean McDermott and forward Callum Robinson remain part of the squad after receiving their first senior call-ups when the provisional panel was announced last week.

The Ireland squad will train at the FAI National Training Centre on Monday, September 3 before then travelling to Cardiff on Tuesday, September 4 for the game against Wales. Then the squad will move on to Poland ahead of the game on Tuesday, September 11.
