Maguire brought into Irish squad with Parrott out through injury

Striker Sean Maguire has been called up to the Republic of Ireland senior squad as they prepare to get their UEFA Nations League campaign underway on Thursday. 

Tory Parrott has been ruled out through injury.

He picked up a muscle injury on Saturday while playing for his new club Milwall in a pre-season friendly against Southend United, in which he scored.

Manager Stephen Kenny briefly addressed 18-year-old Parrott's injury in a press conference on Sunday morning simply saying'

"He has travelled this morning and will have a scan in the afternoon to see the extent of it."

26-year-old Maguire, who plays for Preston North End in the EFL Championship, made his senior international debut for Ireland against Moldova in October 2017.

He has since made 8 senior international appearances in all competitions.

He scored his first goal for Ireland in November of 2019 in a 3-1 win over New Zealand at the Aviva Stadium.

Ireland take on Bulgaria in their first UEFA Nations League game this year in Sofia on Thursday while they welcome Finland to the Aviva Stadium on Sunday 6 September.
