Sammon is joined by Portmarnock's Stephen Ward in the 27-man squad for the friendly with Poland in Aviva Stadium on February 6th. The 26-year-old former Wigan Athletic, Kilmarnock, Derry City and UCD striker has scored six goals in 27 league appearances for Derby County since joining them from Wigan for £1.2 million and has previously played for his country at Under-21 and Under-23 level.

The former Sporting Fingal captain netted as the League 1 highflyers knocked out Sheffield Wednesday 2-0 in a replay.
