ANDREW OMOBAMIDELE AND Daryl Horgan will not feature for the Republic of Ireland in tonight’s sold-out World Cup qualifier against Portugal in Dublin.

Norwich teen Omobamidele emerged yesterday as an injury doubt for the Aviva Stadium clash with manager Stephen Kenny revealing that the defender is struggling with an Achilles’ issue.

Wycombe’s Horgan is the other player to miss out on Kenny’s matchday squad, with Jayson Molumby also ruled out earlier this week with a hamstring injury.

Kick-off is at 7.45pm.
