Republic of Ireland midfielder James McClean has been called up to the squad for Saturday's Euro 2024 qualifier against Netherlands.

The Wrexham player has been brought into the group after Will Smallbone and Festy Ebosele were ruled out on Thursday because of injury.

Evan Ferguson and Jamie McGrath remain doubts for the Amsterdam qualifier.

McClean was set to come into the squad for his final Republic appearance against New Zealand next Tuesday.

The 34-year-old, who won his 100th cap in the win over Gibraltar in June, announced last month that he would retire from international duty after the New Zealand friendly.

Smallbone and Ebosele will also miss the game against New Zealand match at the Aviva Stadium.

The Republic have lost five of their seven qualifiers, with the only wins coming against minnows Gibraltar.
