Squad named; no Walters but O'Neill hopeful”

Striker Jonathan Walters could yet have a part to play in the Republic of Ireland's World Cup play-off against Denmark.

The 34-year-old forward has only made only two substitute appearances for Burnley in the league since signing in the close season.

"Jon is making good progress", said O'Neill, "I have spoken to him and he's coming on well, and maybe if things change for the lad over the next ten days, he could still come in if he continues to improve fitness-wise". "

"I have been speaking to him, he's making very good progress, I haven't put him in so we will see.

".

Ireland are away in the first leg in Parken Stadium, Copenhagen on Saturday, November 11 before hosting the second leg game at the Aviva on Tuesday, November 14.

O'Neill's mission statement for the trip to Denmark: "Come back to Dublin still in the competition". "

"I am pleased (for McCarthy) I was at the game and he played for an hour, it's a good hour against very good opposition, he hasn't played for some time, he got through that and that's encouraging.

".

O'Neill has included Wolves defender Matt Doherty and Reading centre-back Paul McShane in his extended squad which will be cut in advance of the play-off.

Elsewhere, Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper Keiren Westwood returns from a rib injury, while Hull midfielder David Meyler, who will miss the first leg through suspension, is also included.
