Green Gets The Call
Paul Green has been given the chance to impress Republic of Ireland boss Giovanni Trapattoni after being handed a cup up to a training squad.
Green, one of eight uncapped players called up, will attend this training squad with the Republic squad between 16 May and 21 May. The remainder of senior squad will join this on 22 May to prepare for friendlies with Paraguay on 25 May and Algeria on 28 May.
The Ram midfielder's grandfather, on his mother's side, enables Green to qualify and with an influx of new players expected with the Republic there's a chance that he will be able to force himself into Trapattoni's future plans if he impresses.
