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.

A fixture that started as a mid-table game but ended as one that would be marked by having special T-shirts printed to commemorate it - this was the Demolition Derby.
