Republic Of Ireland Call-Up For PNE Quartet

14 August 2017

Four Preston North End players have been called up to the provisional Republic of Ireland squad for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Georgia and Serbia next month.

Alan Browne, Daryl Horgan, Greg Cunningham and Sean Maguire have been named in the 39-man provisional squad by manager Martin O'Neill.

It's a first call up for striker Sean Maguire who has been impressive in his two competitive appearances in a North End shirt, and caught the eye during a superb run of form for Cork City prior to joining PNE.

Alan Browne and Daryl Horgan maintain their place in the squad, with a first call up in four years for defender and stand in captain Greg Cunningham after he has consistently performed in the Championship over the past two seasons.

Browne made his senior debut for his national side against Mexico back in June, while Horgan made his first appearance for O'Neill's side in March against Iceland at the Aviva Stadium.

The Republic of Ireland take on Georgia on Saturday 2nd September before a home tie against Serbia on Tuesday 5th September.

O'Neill's squad have won three and drawn three of their FIFA World Cup qualifiers so far in group D and sit in second place behind Serbia going into the next two games.
