Rob Elliot has been called up to the Republic of Ireland squad for the UEFA 2016 European Championship qualifying game against Poland in Warsaw on Sunday.

The Newcastle United goalkeeper comes in as a replacement for Shay Given, who suffered a knee injury in the 1-0 victory over Germany and will report back to his club for further assessment.

The FAI confirmed that there are no other injury concerns for manager Martin O'Neill with Seamus Coleman and Marc Wilson both available for selection for their final Group D game.
