First Team

Whelan in provisional Ireland squad

29th October 2019

Glenn Whelan has been named in Ireland's provisional squad ahead of their double header against New Zealand and Denmark.

First up is the friendly against the All Whites before their Euro 2020 decider against the Danes, with both matches played in Dublin.

If he makes the final squad, Glenn will have the chance to add to his 90 caps.

There are currently 39 players listed in Mick McCarthy's extended squad. They face New Zealand on Thursday 14th, and Denmark on Monday 18th. A win should ensure Ireland's place at next years European Championships.

The 36-year-old has made 8 appearances for the Jambos so far this season, only missing last weekend's Livingston match since his arrival.
