Robbie Brady is back in the Republic of Ireland squad for their Nations League matches later this month.
He’s been selected off the back of an impressive run of form for Preston, following an absence of 18 months from the international set-up.
Andrew Omobamidele and Callum O’Dowda also return, while Michael Obafemi and Scott Hogan have also been included.
Ireland play Scotland in Glasgow on the 24th of this month, with a game at home to Armenia three days later.
