Republic of Ireland striker Aaron Connolly has rejoined the squad ahead of the UEFA Nations League match against Finland on Wednesday.

Connolly has been given permission to rejoin the squad by the HSE and travelled back to Dublin this morning.

Connolly and Adam Idah had to sit out the Slovakia and Wales games due to being a close contact of a Covid-19 case in the Ireland bubble.

That case has since been revealed as a false positive. 

There was a doubt over whether he could be named in the squad and he was an obvious omission last night as Dara O'Shea, Jason Knight, Ryan Manning, Ronan Curtis and Idah were drafted in. 

However, the striker can now feature in Helsinki with approval also from his club Brighton. 

Goalkeepers: Darren Randolph (West Ham United), Caoimhin Kelleher (Liverpool), Mark Travers (Bournemouth).

Defenders: Matt Doherty (Tottenham Hotspur), Enda Stevens (Sheffield United), Shane Duffy (Celtic, on loan from Brighton & Hove Albion), Kevin Long (Burnley), Cyrus Christie (Nottingham Forest, on loan from Fulham), Dara O'Shea (West Bromwich Albion).

Midfielders: Conor Hourihane (Aston Villa), James McCarthy (Crystal Palace), Jeff Hendrick (Newcastle United), Jayson Molumby (Brighton & Hove Albion), Jack Byrne (Shamrock Rovers), Robbie Brady (Burnley), Josh Cullen (Anderlecht), Jason Knight (Derby County), Ryan Manning (Queens Park Rangers).

Forwards: James McClean (Stoke City), Daryl Horgan (Wycombe Wanderers), Sean Maguire (Preston North End), Shane Long (Southampton), Adam Idah (Norwich City), Ronan Curtis (Portsmouth), Aaron Connolly (Brighton and Hove Albion).
