Ireland

Speaking to Sky Sports Ireland head coach Greg McWilliams said: "I am really pleased with the balance of the squad, there is great youth and experience and I have been impressed by the form of these players in recent weeks."

"We have selected players that have the ability to go for long periods of high-intensity ball in play and have a positive impact on the game."
