Ipswich Town striker Daryl Murphy has been named in the Republic of Ireland squad for their two-leg Euro 2016 play-off shoot-out against Bosnia-Herzegovina.

The 32-year-old scored a hat-trick – his first goals of the season – in Saturday’s 5-2 victory at Rotherham United, and has been selected by manager Martin O’Neill for the games in Bosnia on Friday, November 13 and then the return fixture in Dublin three days later.

Murphy’s Town team-mate, David McGoldrick, was also selected for the provisional squad but was forced to withdraw after missing Saturday’s victory at The New York Stadium with a groin injury.
