Ireland squad for Euro qualifier named
Giovanni Tapattoni has named a 29 man squad for the crucial Euro 2012 qualifier against Macedonia on March 26th and the friendly game against Uruguay on March 29th.
Speaking at the team press conference this afternoon Trapattoni said "Macedonia is a big match for us in our aim to qualify for Euro 2012. Playing at home in the Aviva Stadium is important and we will be keen to build on our recent home performance against Wales. Three days later we will take on Uruguay who have announced a full strength squad to come to Dublin, including Forlan and Suarez. This will be a very good challenge for our players, particularly after Uruguay's strong performance in South Africa last summer."
