Aine O'Gorman has come out of international retirement to be named in the Republic of Ireland squad for two crucial UEFA Women’s Euro 2021 qualifiers.
O'Gorman retired in 2018 after 100 caps but has continued to excel at club Peamount United.
Ireland will welcome Greece in Tallaght Stadium on Thursday, 5 March before travelling to Montenegro to take on the hosts the following Wednesday.
Also returning to the squad are Courtney Brosnan, Harriet Scott, Megan Connolly, Niamh Farrelly, Ruesha Littlejohn and Heather Payne, who all missed last November’s draw away to Greece.
Defenders Keeva Keenan and Megan Campbell are both ruled out due to injury, while Eabha O’Mahony and Emily Whelan will be part of Dave Connell’s Women’s Under-19 squad for three UEFA Elite Phase qualifiers in Czech Republic.
The FAI say 3,500 tickets are "gone" for the home match, with manager Vera Pauw hoping for the same support the team benefitted from last year in the wins over Montenegro and Ukraine.
Trailing behind Group I leaders Germany, Pauw’s team are unbeaten after three games played and will be keen to pick up more points as the race for qualification for next year’s finals tournament in England heats up.
The squad, which will be trimmed down, will meet up on the weekend starting Friday, 28 February to kick off preparations for the two games.
