thumbnail Hello,

Giovanni Trapattoni will take a close look at Manchester United winger Robbie Brady after drafting him into the Ireland squad for Tuesday's international friendly with Oman

Manchester United winger Robbie Brady could be in line to win his first senior international cap after being promoted to the Republic of Ireland squad for Tuesday's international friendly with Oman.

Brady scored for Ireland Under-21s in their 2-1 loss to Hungary on Thursday, but with Noel King's side eliminated from Euro 2013, the 20-year-old has reportedly been called up to the senior squad.

Ireland U21 goalkeeper Ian McLoughlin announced the call-up on Twitter, stating that he was "Absolutely buzzing for Robbie getting called up. Been a big player for us in 21s!!"

Brady spent last season on loan at Hull City and won rave reviews from Tigers fans, scoring three goals in 41 appearances for the Championship side. His scoring record for the Ireland U21s is far more impressive, with seven goals in 11 starts under Noel King.

The Dubliner has yet to make a first-team appearance for Manchester United, but was given game-time on the wing and at full-back in the Red Devils' pre-season tour.

Ireland's friendly on Tuesday at Craven Cottage comes in the wake of an underwhelmling start to their 2014 World Cup qualification campaign. Giovanni Trapattoni's side narrowly beat Kazakhstan, 2-1, on Friday.
