Denise O'Sullivan will travel with the Republic of Ireland Women's National Team to Finland after getting the all-clear following a suspected injury.

The midfielder finished the 1-0 loss to Sweden on Thursday with a suspected arm injury, but following a scan and assessment by the Ireland medical staff she has been given the green light.

The quartet of Amanda Budden, Éabha O'Mahony, Harriet Scott & Jessica Ziu will not be part of the group that departs Dublin on Saturday as the squad has been whittled down to the Match-Day 23.

Ireland will take on Finland in their second 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup Qualifier on Tuesday, October 26, in Helsinki - which will be live on RTÉ2 from 16:00.
