Martin O'Neill has named a very physical side for Ireland's penultimate Euro 2016 warm-up game against the Netherlands at the Aviva Stadium.

A number of players in need of game time, like John O'Shea, Jonathan Walters, David McGoldrick and Harry Arter, have been handed starting berths.

Shane Duffy starts alongside O'Shea with Seamus Coleman and Robbie Brady filling in on either wing at full-back.

Arter plays alongside Glenn Whelan, Stephen Quinn and Walters in midfield.

Ipswich Town's McGoldrick will feature up front with the in-form Shane Long.

Ireland XI: Randolph, Coleman, O'Shea, Duffy, Brady; Whelan, Arter, Quinn; Walters, McGoldrick, Long
