Martin O’Neill has confirmed his 26-man squad for the upcoming friendlies with France and the USA which include domestic based players, Bohemians goalkeeper Shane Supple and Shamrock Rovers forward Graham Burke.
Ireland face France in Paris on Monday, before John O’Shea’s final game for his country against the US on Saturday-week.
