DUBLIN WILL NAME their team later this evening ahead of Sunday’s All-Ireland football final.

Manager Jim Gavin saw his team reach this stage by virtue of success in their epic semi-final clash against Kerry.

Gavin was grateful to the contributions of his substitutes in that game. Philly McMahon helped tighten up their defence while Denis Bastick impacted at midfield.

The attacking trio of Kevin McManamon, Eoghan O’Gara and Dean Rock shot 2-2 between them during their time on the pitch.

But should any of them force their way into the starting 15 on Sunday?
