Bohemians goalkeeper Shane Supple has been called into the Republic of Ireland squad to face France and USA in friendlies.
Darren Randolph, Rob Elliot and Keiren Westwood are injured for the games so the Bohs man, who is regarded as one of the leading netminder’s in the league, has been called upon.
The 31-year-old turned his back on a professional career in England nine years ago to return to Ireland, with a view to playing Gaelic Games with Dublin.
But in 2016 he returned to league football with the SSE Airtricity League outfit as well as playing club for St Brigid’s.
His form under Keith Long has led to O’Neill making a call after watching Bohs against Dundalk last Friday.
Fellow League of Ireland player Graham Burke also keeps his place in the squad for the friendlies after playing in the testimonial game against Celtic.
Ireland play France in Paris next Monday and USA on 2 June at the Aviva Stadium.
