Delaney Confirmed in Irish Squad
Delaney Confirmed in Irish Squad
Tuesday, 2nd Aug 2011 16:56

Defender Damien Delaney has been confirmed in the final 25-man Republic of Ireland squad for their friendly against Croatia in Dublin next Wednesday. The call-up confirms that the 30-year-old, who was named in a larger provisional party a fortnight ago, will miss Town's Carling Cup tie against Northampton the previous night.

The Blues are likely to be without a number of regulars when they face the Cobblers due to the full programme of international fixtures with Tamás Priskin already having been named in Hungary’s squad.

Joining Delaney in Dublin will be Town target Keith Andrews, ex-skipper Jon Walters and former loanee Darren O’Dea, as well as winger Keith Treacy, who has completed his move from Preston to Burnley having been linked with Town earlier in the summer.

Republic of Ireland: Shay Given, Keiren Westwood, David Forde, Seamus Coleman, Stephen Kelly, Stephen Ward, Richard Dunne, Sean St Ledger, Darren O’Dea, Damien Delaney, Glenn Whelan, Darron Gibson, Keith Andrews, Keith Fahey, Andy Keogh, Damien Duff, Stephen Hunt, James McCarthy, Keith Treacy, Marc Wilson, Robbie Keane, Kevin Doyle, Jon Walters, Shane Long, Simon Cox.

Tommy Smith at LCB against Northampton, not such a bad thing at all seeing as I don't believe he'll get too many chances to play in the first team when Delaney is available.

Lets hope he doesnt get injured otherwise PJ will have to do a Joe Royle and convert a striker into a defender!
Scotland or Priskin perhaps since they seem surplus up front
