Martin O’Neill Names Ireland Starting XI For Crunch Denmark Tie

David Meyler

Martin O’Neill has named the starting eleven that he believes can propel Ireland to next year’s World Cup.

With that in mind, many had called for Norwich playmaker Wes Hoolahan to be given the nod to start in this clash, but he remains on the bench as O’Neill keeps changes to a minimum.

In the only change for proceedings, David Meyler (as expected) returns to the starting lineup having missed the first leg through suspension, with the Hull City midfielder replacing Callum O’Dowda from the start and Robbie Brady moving back to the wing in a rejigged midfield.

Predictably, there are no changes with either goalkeeper or defence, with all involved involving suspension-incuding yellow cards at the Parken Stadium – while up front, Daryl Murphy keeps his place ahead of Shane Long as the lone striker.

Kick-off at the Aviva Stadium is at 7.45pm.
