Kenny names 24-man squad for Netherlands & New Zealand

Republic of Ireland manager Stephen Kenny has named a 24-man squad for the UEFA EURO 2024 qualifier against the Netherlands and an international friendly against New Zealand.

Ireland are set to face the Netherlands on Saturday, November 18 at the Amsterdam Arena before heading back to Dublin to face New Zealand at the Aviva Stadium on Tuesday, November 21.

Troy Parrott receives a recall to the Ireland squad following his impressive form on loan in the Dutch Eredivisie with Excelsior Rotterdam having scored three goals in eight league appearances this campaign. Liverpool goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher comes back into the squad following his injury which ruled him out for the qualifiers against Greece and Gibraltar in October.

James McClean will return to the Ireland squad for the New Zealand friendly with the match set to be his 103rd and final cap for the Republic of Ireland with the player set to retire at the end of the 2023 campaign.

It is a largely unchanged squad from the October international window as Stephen Kenny looks to end the UEFA EURO 2024 qualifying campaign on a high against the Netherlands with the team set to be backed by a sold-out travelling support in Amsterdam.
