Peter Keane has named his Kerry team to face Dublin in Saturday night's Allianz Football League opener, with David Clifford leading the Kingdom into battle for the first time as captain.

Clifford forms a strong full-forward line alongside James O'Donoghue and Paul Geaney, with Tommy Walsh and Adrian Spillane in the middle of the field.

Keane has named 11 of the men who started last September's drawn All-Ireland final with the Dubs.

Kerry lost the replay and will look for a little bit of revenge at Croke Park.

For Dublin, it's the start of a new era. Dessie Farrell's reign began with an O'Byrne Cup loss to Longford two weeks ago but he's expected to name a far stronger 15 for tomorrow night's clash, as all his key men come back into the fold following the team holiday in Bali.
