ireland 4Stephen Ward has been left out of recent Republic of Ireland squads but when Martin O’Neill named his provisional squad yesterday for games against Wales and Poland he was one of four Burnley players named.

He’s joined by fellow defender Kevin Long, midfielder Jeff Hendrick and, maybe surprisingly, forward Jon Walters who had been involved in, shall we say, a disagreement with Roy Keane.

Robbie Brady, a big hero in Ireland, is one of four players, alongside James McCarthy, Scott Hogan and Sean Maguire, who are ruled out because of injury.

The first game is against Wales in Cardiff on 6th September in the Nations League and that will be followed by a friendly against Poland in Wroclaw five days later and the squad will be reduced to 23 next Monday.
