Republic of Ireland manager Mick McCarthy expects Darren Randolph to be fit for the Boys in Green's crucial Euro 2020 qualifier against Denmark next month.

It's unknown how long the goalkeeper from Bray will be out, after getting an issue on his thigh with his club Middlesborough.

McCarthy has said, “Darren is hopeful at this point in time that he will be fit to report in with the rest of the squad on the Sunday, ahead of the New Zealand game.

“The Denmark match is three weeks away still and Darren is confident that he has enough time on his side to get over the injury and play for us in the game that can get us to the Euros.

 

“Glenn was left out of the Livingston game to rest him with Hearts playing so many games at present while I spoke to Shane and he missed the Everton game as a precaution.

“He got a kick on his calf in training and they felt it was better not to take a chance on involving him for that one but he says he will be fine for us.”

Meanwhile, the Republic of Ireland boss has also been speaking about Aaron Connolly who continued his fine form for Brighton in their 3-2 win at home to Everton in the Premier League at the weekend.

“Aaron did really well again for Brighton in a striker role,” said McCarthy. “It was the sort of game where he didn’t get a lot of the ball but everything that he did do was very good and he won the penalty for their second goal just before he went off by getting right in behind the defender.

“Like Aaron, Troy Parrott has a real chance of starting against New Zealand and like everyone else in Ireland, I am looking forward to seeing him working with the senior squad and playing at this level.”
