Ireland manager Martin O'Neill has finalised his squad for Sunday's friendly international against Uruguay at Aviva Stadium.

The Boys in Green started preparations for the June 11th World Cup qualifier against Austria by facing Mexico in New Jersey last night.

Ireland lost the fixture 3-1 with many of the squad regulars absent.

Uruguay are the final friendly opposition before the Austria match and many of the regulars have been recalled to the squad for that fixture.

Keiren Westwood, John O'Shea, Robbie Brady, Jeff Hendrick, Glenn Whelan, Harry Arter, Aiden McGeady, Jonny Hayes and Jonathan Walters have been added to the camp, while midfielder Stephen Quinn will link up for training.

The 10 players overall will be added to the 19-man panel that travelled for the Mexico match, with the exception of Birmingham City midfielder Stephen Gleeson who has left the squad.
