Chiedozie Ogbene and Caoimhin Kelleher make their first starts for Ireland in tonight's friendly international with Qatar at the Aviva Stadium.

Both players have made their debut from the bench, with Kelleher playing in Hungary during the summer, while Ogbene made his second appearance in Baku on Saturday, scoring Ireland’s third goal.

Callum Robinson will play up front with Ogbene, supported by Jamie McGrath, who plays in a three-man midfield, alongside Jeff Hendrick and Conor Hourihane.

Enda Stevens returns to the side in place of James McClean; the Sheffield United defender has missed several games through injury and slots back into the left-wingback position.

Matt Doherty resumes his right wing-back role, while the back three remains unchanged from the win in Azerbaijan as captain Shane Duffy sits in alongside John Egan and Andrew Omobamidele.
