Barrett included by Ireland

Arsenal FC's Graham Barrett has been called up by the Republic of Ireland for the friendly against Greece.

Arsenal FC's Graham Barrett has been called up by the Republic of Ireland for this month's friendly against Greece in Athens.

Stand-in coach
Barrett, currently on loan with English first division side Brighton and Hove Albion FC, is the only surprise inclusion in stand-in coach Don Givens' squad. Givens, the Under-21 coach, has taken temporary charge of the senior squad following Mick McCarthy's departure last week.

Not included
Givens has omitted Sunderland AFC duo Phil Babb and Thomas Butler, Wimbledon FC's in-form striker David Connolly and Birmingham City FC's Jeff Kenna for the match on 20 November.

Disappointing start
The Republic of Ireland have made a disappointing start to their UEFA EURO 2004™ qualifying programme, with defeats against Group 10 rivals Russia and Switzerland. They take on Greece on 20 November.

Republic of Ireland squad
Given, Kiely, Colgan, Kelly, Carr, Finnan, Harte, Breen, Cunningham, O'Shea, Dunne, O'Brien, Doherty, Holland, Healy, Kinsella, Carsley, Delap, McPhail, Kilbane, Kennedy, Duff, Keane, Morrison, Barrett.
