With two crucial UEFA Women's Euro 2021 qualifiers upcoming against Greece and Montenegro, the return of Áine O'Gorman is no doubt a boost to the squad.

With defenders Keeva Keenan and Megan Campbell both ruled out, O'Gorman has answered the call to be part of the Irish squad again after calling time on her international career in 2018.

The Peamount United player is now in line to win a 101st cap against the Greeks at Tallaght Stadium on 5 March. 

For Ireland manager Vera Pauw, O'Gorman's "experience" was key in the request to come back.

Speaking at a press conference, where an extended squad for the two qualifiers was named, Pauw said: "Aine brings a lot of experience and that's the key reason why we've asked her to be available for us. 

"We have a few injuries - Megan Campbell and Keeva Keenan - both cannot play. Both are full-backs and so Aine can give us the experience in that area.

"The approach was made. Aine had taken a step back from elite football and the time she was investing in it because of her work commitments.

"We are very happy that she takes the risk to take this path for us."

Will O'Gorman start against the Greeks?

The Irish coach gave a strong indication that won't be involved to make up the numbers when adding: "the intention is to see who is best there but we would not have brought Aine back in if we did not have the intention of finding that out whether she will start."
