MARTIN O’NEILL HAS named his starting XI for today’s Euro 2016 qualifier in Dublin.

The Boys in Green welcome Gibraltar to the Aviva Stadium for a 5pm kick-off ahead of their trip to Germany to take on the world champions on Tuesday.

Without the injured Everton duo Seamus Coleman and James McCarthy, O’Neill has gone for David Meyler at right full-back while Jeff Hendrick partners Darron Gibson in midfield.

James McClean and Aiden McGeady occupy the wings while Norwich City’s Wes Hoolahan plays in behind captain Robbie Keane.

Ireland team v Gibraltar: Forde, Meyler, O’Shea, Wilson, Ward, McGeady, Hendrick, Gibson, McClean, Hoolahan, Keane.
