Josh Cullen has been called into the Republic of Ireland squad ahead of Thursday's Euro 2020 playoff with Slovakia. 

Anderlecht's latest signing replaces Harry Arter who misses out with a thigh injury.

Cullen linked up with the rest of the squad on Tuesday, after they'd trained in Abbotstown.

The squad arrived in Bratislava on Tuesday evening without three members of the backroom team.

One individual tested positive for COVID-19, while two others were deemed close contacts and must restrict their movements as a result.

It's believed the individuals involved are not part of the coaching staff.

All players and coaching staff tested negative for COVID-19 prior to their departure for the Slovak capital.
