Brentford's Alan Judge has been called into the Ireland squad for the friendlies with France and the USA.

The Dubliner was named in Martin O'Neill's provisional panel but failed to make the final cut.

However, he has been drafted into the 26-man squad due to a shoulder injury suffered by Leeds' Eunan O'Kane.

Judge won his second cap for Ireland in March's friendly in Turkey, an important step on his long road back from a horror leg break before Euro 2016.
