Rob Elliot has been named in Noel King’s Republic of Ireland squad to face Germany and Kazakhstan this month.

Newcastle goalkeeper Elliot receives his first senior call up in place of Darren Randolph, who misses out in order to have treatment on a shoulder injury.

Jonathan Walters will be medically assessed at Stoke tomorrow to determine whether he will report for duty on Monday after being substituted in the 70th minute against Fulham today with a groin problem.

Damien Delaney, who was added into the provisional squad on Thursday after he passed a late fitness test at Crystal Palace, remains in the squad.

Paul McShane, Stephen Quinn and Paul Green remain on standby.

Ireland face the Germans in Cologne on October 11 and the Kazakhs in Dublin four days later.
