Bohemians goalkeeper Shane Supple has been called into the Ireland squad for the friendly games with France and the USA.

Martin O'Neill was impressed by the player when he went to watch him in Friday's League of Ireland defeat to Dundalk.

And with Darren Randolph, Rob Elliot and Keiren Westwood missing through injury, Independent.ie understands that O'Neill has turned to 31-year-old Supple.

He has been given a full call up to the squad to provide competition for Colin Doyle and Conor O'Malley.

It's a considerable achievement for the Dubliner given that he quit football in 2009 when Ireland assistant Roy Keane was manager of Ipswich.

He was a first team player but was disillusioned with the sport and came home to pursue a career away from the game and to try and break into the Dublin GAA ranks.

But he returned to the sport on an amateur basis with Crumlin in 2015 and then joined Bohemians a year later.

He is a key player for Keith Long's side but still plays GAA with St Brigid's where possible.
