HARRY ARTER MAKES his competitive debut for Ireland this evening after being named the team to take on Austria (5pm Irish time).

The Bournemouth star features in a midfield alongside Glenn Whelan, Jeff Hendrick, Wes Hoolahan and James McClean, with Jon Walters starting up front in place of the injured Shane Long.

Robbie Brady drops back into full-back as Stephen Ward is unavailable, and the back four is completed by captain Seamus Coleman, Shane Duffy and Ciaran Clark.

Dundalk’s Daryl Horgan has made the bench, but club-mate Andy Boyle won’t have any involvement tonight.

Ireland team to face Austria: Randolph, Coleman (c), Duffy, Clark, Brady, Whelan, Arter, Hendrick, McClean, Hoolahan, Walters.
Subs: Westwood, C Doyle, O’Shea, Keogh, McGeady, McGoldrick, Horgan, K Doyle, Meyler, McShane, O’Dowda, Pearce.
