Ipswich Town striker David McGoldrick has been selected for the latest Republic of Ireland squad.
The striker, 29, has been named in a 37-man squad for matches against Mexico, Uruguay and Austria in June.
It comes after the silky frontman finally overcame a host of injuries to get back to something approaching his best form for Town towards the end of the season.
In all he appeared 32 times for the Blues last season, scoring five goals. On his day, he is still one of the very best players in the Championship and Town will hope a full, unhindered season from him next campaign can go a large way towards turning their fortunes around. Former Ipswich team-mate Daryl Murphy has also been included in the squad. The Republic will face Mexico in a friendly at the MetLife Stadium in New York on June 1, before returning home to face Uruguay, again in a friendly, on June 4. They then face Austria in a 2018 World Cup qualifier on June 11.
