Dunne called up to full Ireland squad

16th November 2018

Jimmy Dunne has been called up to the full Republic of Ireland squad for their final Nations League match against Denmark.


The 21-year-old had previously been included in Martin O'Neill's provisional squad but found out last week he had not made the final cut.

However, the centre-back has now been parachuted into the side as they prepare to take on the Danes in Copenhagen. 

He joins fellow Jambo Colin Doyle in the squad, as he looks to win his first cap for the country of his birth.

Jimmy made two appearances for the Green Army's under-21 side last month but has seen his fine form for Hearts rewarded with a call-up to the senior side.

The Republic of Ireland played Northern Ireland in a friendly on Thursday night, finishing 0-0 in Dublin. Michael Smith started the game for Northern Ireland, playing 75 minutes.
