Alan Browne has been named to start in Ireland's must win Euro 2020 qualifier against Denmark at the Aviva Stadium, kick-off 7:45pm.

In what is largely an expected selection, manager Mick McCarthy has opted to select the Preston man ahead of Callum Robinson on the right-hand side of midfield in what appears to be a 4-5-1 formation.

Sheffield United striker David McGoldrick will lead the line upfront.

Browne, who also started the defeat to Switzerland, and James McClean llook set to occupy the wide berths in midfield, though Jeff Hendrick and Browne could end up swapping in and out of that right sided position.

Glenn Whelan will anchor the midfield and take on the onerous task of keeping Denmark danger man Christian Eriksen quiet in the middle of the park.

Conor Hourihane and Hendrick join Whelan in the midfield.

Shane Duffy will captain the side for the first time in his career and is joined in the centre of defence by John Egan.

Matt Doherty, as expected, fills the void left by the suspended skipper Seamus Coleman, while Enda Stevens makes up the quartet of Sheffield United players and resumes his role at left back.

Darren Randolph has overcome an injury recently but has been passed fit to start the game in goal.

Denmark meanwhile have made three changes in personnel. Henrik Dalsgaard, Yussuf Poulsen and Andreas Cornelius come in for Robert Skov, Christian Gytkjaer and Daniel Wass.

Republic of Ireland: Darren Randolph; Matt Doherty, Shane Duffy, John Egan, Enda Stevens; Glenn Wheland, Conor Hourihane, Jeff Hendrick; James McClean, Al;an Browne, David McGoldrick.

Denmark: Schmeichel; Dalsgaard, Jorgensen, Kjaer, Styger Larsen; Schone, Delaney; Poulsen, Eriksen, Braithwaite; Cornelius
