Mick McCarthy believes that he has plenty of ammunition in his squad and will not make any additions for the trip to Denmark despite Shane Long being ruled out through injury.

The Southampton striker will miss the Euro 2020 qualifiers double-header as a result of a hamstring injury, however, the Ireland manager believes that he is well stocked in that department.

Long is the latest player to withdraw from the squad following the loss of Alan Browne, Mark Travers and Luca Connell through injury, yet Ireland still have plenty of options to lead the line on Friday night in Copenhagen.

David McGoldrick led the line against Georgia and the Sheffield United man is expected to remain in possession of the jersey following his man of the match performance at the Aviva Stadium in March, while Sean Maguire, Scott Hogan and Callum Robinson will also be pushing for inclusion.

Portsmouth’s Ronan Curtis has also played in a centre forward role at club level, while James McClean was often employed up top under the previous regime.

"It's a disappointment, but I hope it doesn't turn out to be a blow," said McCarthy, speaking at the launch of the new Ireland team suit from official sponsor Benetti Menswear.

"I’m hoping that we have other strikers who can do the business, but it's a huge blow for him as he recovered from the last time and picked up this injury.

"I’m really disappointed for him, but he has to get back and hopefully he can get right for the next games."

"I’m not bringing anyone else in. I’ve got five or six strikers in, so we have plenty of ammunition."
