Preston striker Sean Maguire and Wycombe Wanderers winger Daryl Horgan have been called up to the Republic of Ireland squad. 

Both players will link up with Stephen Kenny's squad later today, replacing Aaron Connolly and Adam Idah.

Connolly and Idah will both return to their clubs after missing the Euro 2020 playoff semi-final defeat to Slovakia.

Both were ruled out of the game in Bratislava as a result of being a close contact to a member of the travelling party who tested positive for coronavirus.

The Republic of Ireland will be back on action on Sunday when they face Wales at the Aviva Stadium in the Nations League and the Boys in Green will then travel to Finland next week.

The squad will train at the FAI National Training Centre on Saturday ahead of the Wales game, which kicks off at 2pm.

Republic of Ireland squad:

Goalkeepers: Darren Randolph (West Ham United), Caoimhin Kelleher (Liverpool), Mark Travers (Bournemouth).

Defenders: Matt Doherty (Tottenham Hotspur), Enda Stevens (Sheffield United), Shane Duffy (Celtic, on loan from Brighton & Hove Albion), John Egan (Sheffield United), Derrick Williams (Blackburn Rovers), Kevin Long (Burnley), Cyrus Christie (Nottingham Forest, on loan from Fulham).

Midfielders: Conor Hourihane (Aston Villa), James McCarthy (Crystal Palace), Jeff Hendrick (Newcastle United), Alan Browne (Preston North End), Jayson Molumby (Brighton & Hove Albion), Jack Byrne (Shamrock Rovers), Robbie Brady (Burnley), Josh Cullen (Anderlecht).

Forwards: Callum Robinson (West Bromwich Albion), Callum O’Dowda (Bristol City), James McClean (Stoke City), Daryl Horgan (Wycombe Wanderers), David McGoldrick (Sheffield United), Sean Maguire (Preston North End), Shane Long (Southampton)
