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.
