Things have certainly changed for Burnley as far as the Republic of Ireland are concerned. In 2010, Keith Treacy became the first Burnley player to win a cap for them but today Martin O’Neill has, as expected, called up three of our players to face Wales in Dublin in this month’s World Cup qualifier although only two of them can play.

It’s a provisional squad of 39, something O’Neill tends to do but Robbie Brady (pictured) is suspended for the game although he will be available for a friendly against Iceland a few days later and has, therefore, been included. It’s a first call up for Brady as a Burnley player and he makes up the three alongside Stephen Ward and Jeff Hendrick.



The Wales game will be played on Friday 24th March with the Iceland friendly to come four days later. Both games will be played at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.
