Republic of Ireland manager Stephen Kenny has included 19-year-old Gavin Bazunu in his 29-man squad for the World Cup qualifiers against Serbia and Luxembourg.

The Manchester City goalkeeper - on loan at Rochdale this season - is one of four goalkeepers named in the squad as an update on Caoimhin Kelleher's fitness is required before the players report for duty on Sunday.

Striker Aaron Connolly will also be assessed by the medical team on his injury after being named in the squad.

Troy Parrott, currently on loan at Ipswich Town has also been included along with Callum O’Dowda, who has only recently returned from injury with Bristol City.

The squad will travel to Serbia for their opening qualifying match in Belgrade on Wednesday, March 24th, before returning to Dublin to face Luxembourg on Saturday, March 27th.

The Boys in Green will then travel to Hungary to face Qatar in an international friendly on Tuesday, March 30th.

The squad will report to Manchester on Sunday before flying to Belgrade on Monday afternoon.
