Mick McCarthy has made two changes to his Ireland XI for the Euro 2020 qualifier against Gibraltar.

The Boys in Green drew with Denmark on Friday night and McCarthy has chosen to make minor tweaks.

Scott Hogan comes in up front and Callum Robinson also starts on the right flank.


Robbie Brady and Glenn Whelan have been left out and there is also a change of formation.

Aiming for 10

With Whelan out and Hogan included, a 4-4-2 is likely. Darren Randolph starts in goal as expected, while the back-four is unchanged. Shane Duffy and Richard Keogh are the centre-back partners, with Seamus Coleman and Enda Stevens at right and left-full back respectively.

Jeff Hendrick and Conor Hourihane will form the midfield partnership. James McClean and Robinson occupy the flanks, providing service for Hogan and David McGoldrick.

Ireland are aiming to move on to 10 points from a possible 12 at the start of the qualifying group.

They have already beaten Gibraltar, albeit by a narrow 1-0 margin away from home in March.
