Norwich midfielder Wes Hoolahan has been named in Republic of Ireland squad for the friendly match against Greece that is scheduled for 14th November.
The experienced midfielder will get a chance to win his second cap after being handed his debut more than four years ago.
Hoolahan earned Ireland recall thanks to the bright start to the season at Norwich, with boss Giovanni Trapattoni hoping the 30-year-old will give his side some much needed creativity.
The Irish are desperate to record a morale-boosting victory following the 6-1 defeat to Germany in the 2014 World Cup qualifiers, with friendly match against Greece also giving the boss a chance to test some new players.
Trapattoni has named a provisional 26-man squad for the game that will be played at Aviva Stadium in Dublin, with Robbie Keane the only high-profile absentee.
Everton defender Shane Duffy and Chelsea youngster Conor Clifford could get the chance to win their first caps.
This will be the final test before Ireland resume their 2014 World Cup qualifying campaign, where they currently sit in third place, just one point adrift of Sweden.
For those of you who still believe Giovanni Trapattoni’s side can still make it to the tournament finals, BetVictor offers odds of 2.75 (7/4) on Ireland to finish in top 2.
