Despite picking up a calf injury in training which kept him out of Tuesday night’s friendly clash with Belarus, Republic of Ireland captain Robbie Keane has been named in Martin O’Neill’s 23-man squad for EURO 2016.

However, while the 35-year-old has made the cut, Harry Arter has been left out of O’Neill’s squad after the Bournemouth midfielder left the team’s Cork training camp with a hamstring injury.

Midfielder James McCarthy did make the squad despite struggling with a hamstring injury. However, McCarthy’s Everton team-mate Darron Gibson misses out, while the other players to miss out are David Forde, Eunan O’Kane, Callum O’Dowda and David McGoldrick.

Here’s the squad in full…

Tuesday night’s clash with Belarus ended in a 2-1 defeat for the Irish in Cork. However, the presence of Keane in France will be a big boost for O’Neill’s men who face an uphill task to qualify from a horrible group which includes Belgium, Italy and Sweden.
