O’Neill selects Republic of Ireland Euro 2016 squad

Republic of Ireland coach Martin O’Neill has named his 23-man squad for the upcoming European Championship finals, with Everton midfielder Darron Gibson failing to make the final roster.

The Boys in Green failed to qualify for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, but thanks to a win over Bosnia in the Euro 2016 play-offs they booked their place at the showpiece tournament in France.

Ireland will face the likes of Sweden, Belgium and Italy in Group E and coach Martin O’Neill has selected 23 players, who will represent the country at Euro 2016 finals.

The likes of David Forde, Darron Gibson, Eunan O’Kane and David McGoldrick have been overlooked, while experienced attacker Robbie Keane is in the squad despite worries about his fitness.

Harry Arter has been ruled out through injury, but veteran goalkeeper Shay Given has been included in the final list.

Republic of Ireland kick off their Euro 2016 campaign with a match against Sweden on 13 June.
