Keane, Doc in Ireland squad

Posted on 8 October 2002  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Robbie Keane and Gary Doherty have been named in Mick McCarthy's latest Irish squad.

The pair are in the party preparing to face Switzerland in the European Championship qualifying match at Lansdowne Road next Wednesday, October 16.

Stephen Carr, who had to pull out of the friendly against Finland in August after pulling his hamstring at Everton, is not named in this squad but has returned to action for our reserves and may figure again next time around.

It is a crucial first home game in the group for Ireland after they were beaten 4-2 by Russia last month - at least big Gary was on target in Moscow.

Squad: Given (Newcastle), Kiely (Charlton), Colgan (Hibernian), Harte (Leeds), Breen (West Ham), Kelly (Leeds), Cunningham (Birmingham), O'Shea (Manchester United), O'Brien (Newcastle), Babb (Sunderland), Holland (Ipswich), Healy (Celtic), Kinsella (Aston Villa), Carsley (Everton), Delap (Southampton), McPhail (Leeds), Kilbane (Sunderland), Keane (Tottenham), Morrison (Birmingham), Duff (Blackburn), Doherty (Tottenham), Kenna (Birmingham).
