Republic of Ireland Under-21s manager Jim Crawford has called-up Accrington Stanley’s Ryan Cassidy for the European qualifiers against Iceland and Luxembourg. 

Cassidy comes into the squad for Celtic’s Jonathan Afolabi (currently on loan at Dundee) who has been ruled out of both games due to injury.

Cassidy was part of Crawford’s training camp in Belfast in August but it's the first time the Watford forward has been included in the Under-21 squad.

Ireland are second in Group 1 heading into the two remaining games and are one of four teams still in the running to top the group.
