Robbie Brady and David Meyler will make their senior international debuts in an experimental Republic of Ireland side which takes on Oman in a friendly at Craven Cottage tomorrow night.

It's quite a unique situation for Manchester United midfielder Brady, who is yet to play for his club, having spent last season out on loan to Hull. The Dubliner has impressed for the Republic's U21 side and, having been handed a late call up to the squad, comes straight in to the team.

James McCarthy is the only player to start in the World Cup qualifer victory over Kazakhstan and be be named in Tuesday's line-up.

Kevin Doyle, who came off the bench to score the winner on Friday night, will captain the team.

Republic of Ireland team to play Oman:

David Forde, Seamus Coleman, Stephen Kelly, Paul McShane, Marc Wilson, David Meyler, James McCarthy, Robbie Brady, Kevin Doyle (capt.), Shane Long, Andy Keogh.
