Albion duo Aaron Connolly and Shane Duffy have been named in the republic of Ireland's 28-man squad to take on New Zealand and Denmark.

This is Connolly second call-up to the Ireland squad after impressing prior to the last international break, scoring a brace on his first Premier League start for Albion in a 3-0 win over Tottenham back at the start of October.

Duffy is again called up after proving his fitness in the previous international break, after recovering from a calf injury. 

In Albion's game last weekend at Norwich Duffy came off the bench to replace the injured Adam Webster and score Albion's second in a 2-0 win at the Amex.

Ireland take on New Zealand in a friendly on the 14th November at the Aviva stadium.

Then four days later they take on Denmark at the Aviva stadium in the Euro 2020 qualifying, knowing a win will secure them a place at the tournement next summer.
