KERRY MANAGER PETER Keane has named his team for tomorrow’s All-Ireland SFC semi-final meeting with Tyrone at Croke Park [3.30pm, RTÉ2, Sky Sports Arena].

And Keane has stuck with the same starting 15 that lined out for the Munster final win over Cork on 25 July.

Shane Ryan continues in goal, with a full-back line of Brian Ó Beaglaoich, Jason Foley and Tom O’Sullivan.

Paul Murphy captains the side from centre-back, with Mike Breen and Gavin White completing the half-back line.

In midfield, David Moran and Jack Barry continue their partnership.

Diarmuid O’Connor – who had been an injury concern – Seán O’Shea and Stephen O’Brien line out in the half-forward line, with the familiar trio of David Clifford, Paul Geaney and Paudie Clifford starting in the full-forward line.

Meanwhile Dara Moynihan comes onto the Kerry bench, having missed the Munster final win over Cork due to injury.
