Republic of Ireland have finalised their squad for Friday’s crucial UEFA Women’s European Championship qualifier away to Ukraine.
A draw or a win for Vera Pauw’s team – against the side they narrowly beat 3-2 last year – would secure a play-off spot with one game still to go – at home to Germany on 1 December.
Goalkeeper Marie Hourihan misses out due to a dislocated finger, while some players are on standby ahead of the squad meeting up in Duisburg, Germany for a training camp ahead of the game.
The game will be broadcast live on RTE2 at 5pm.
