Town pair named in Ireland squad

DAMIEN Delaney and Keith Andrews have been named in the Republic of Ireland squad for their forthcoming Euro 2012 qualifiers.

The Ipswich Town duo form part of a 27-man squad to face Andorra on October 7 and Armenia on October 11.

Ireland boss Giovanni Trapattoni said: “It is vital that we keep focused as we reach our final two games of this campaign. We will approach them one game at a time.

“It is also important for us to concentrate on our own results, rather than what is happening in the group. We do not underestimate any of our opponents.”

Delaney has four caps for the Republic of Ireland while Andrews will be looking to add to his 22 appearances and two goals.
