Brentford pair get Ireland call

Egan and Judge in Republic of Ireland provisional squad

8 March 2018

Brentford pair Alan Judge and John Egan have received Republic of Ireland international call-ups. The duo have been named in the provisional squad for an upcoming friendly fixture against Turkey. Alan and John are part of the initial group that will be whittled down to a final squad later this month.

Ireland will travel to Turkey for the friendly international on Friday 23 March. The game will kick-off at 8.30pm local time and the Brentford pair, if selected, will link up with the squad next Sunday, 18 March. They will join the squad after Brentford’s Sky Bet Championship match against Middlesbrough and return to West London after the match.

Both will be hoping to add to their international caps. It is the first call-up for Alan since he returned from a serious broken leg. That injury came just days after Alan made his international debut in a friendly against Switzerland. He had been around the Ireland squad for most of the 2015/16 season and has also played for his country at Under-17, Under-18, Under-19, Under-21 and Under-23 level.

John made his international debut a year ago. He started for Ireland in a friendly against Iceland and has made one further appearance, against Mexico last summer. John has also played at Under-17, Under-19 and Under-21 level.
