Norwich City’s Wes Hoolahan called up to Republic of Ireland squad

Wes Hoolahan has been called up to the provisional Republic of Ireland squad to face Greece next month.

The Norwich City midfielder was the big addition to Giovanni Trapattoni's 26-man squad for the friendly at Lansdowne Road on 14 November.

The squad will be shortened to 23 players before meeting up in Dublin on November 11.

Trapattoni said: 'I have decided to choose a provisional 26-man squad for this game due to injury doubts over players. As we have a break from competitive games for a few months, I am using this fixture as an opportunity to try out new players and view their potential.'

Hoolahan made his one and only appearance for his country as a substitute in a 1-0 win over Columbia at Craven Cottage in May 2008.

• Squad: Westwood, Forde, Randolph, Coleman, O'Shea, O'Dea, Kelly, McShane, Ward, Duffy, Clark, Delaney, Andrews, McCarthy, Fahey, Meyler, Whelan, Clifford, Keogh, McGeady, McClean, Brady, Hoolahan, Doyle, Cox, Walters.
