Republic of Ireland squad to face Sweden and Austria

Updated: August 26, 2013

Giovanni Trapattoni has announced a provisional 29 man squad for Ireland’s upcoming 2014 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers against Sweden on September 6 in Aviva Stadium, and Austria on September 10 Ernst Happel Stadion, Vienna. 

There was only one surprise with no place for Kevin Doyle, the Wolves player really needs a move away from Molineaux and play at a higher level.

The squad will be shortened ahead of the fixture in order to accommodate injuries etc.

Speaking today, the Republic of Ireland manager said, ‘We have reached the most important part of our qualifying campaign. The team performed very well against both Sweden and Austria back in March. We will look to emulate both performances, and build towards producing two positive results. ’


He continued, ‘Sweden and Austria are two very strong teams, and the qualifying table proves this. However, I believe these players have the mentality, attitude and composure to work together and get the points we need in order to qualify. We will prepare for both games next week and focus on the task facing us.’

Tickets for the Sweden game are now on sale from  at just €10 for children and starting at €35 for adults. Betting To Qualify
