The squad, which was named by Garry Cahill on Wednesday, is captained by Conor Niland and also includes Louk Sorensen, James McGee and Sam Barry.

The match will be played at the Szeged Varosi Sportcsarnok in Szegen between the 10th and 12th of February.

Garry Cahill said: “We have a strong team heading out to Hungary and we’re really looking forward to the tie. This is a team with the experience, ability and passion to win this tie.

“Hard work and a good team spirit will also be key to a successful start to our 2012 Davis Cup campaign.
