The Irish Times - Sports Weekend - - SPORTS - EM­MET MALONE

Coven­try City’s Jor­dan Ship­ley has been called into the Repub­lic of Ire­land un­der-21 squad by man­ager Noel King for the first time ahead of the fi­nal Euro­pean Cham­pi­onship qual­i­fiers.

With games away to Is­rael next Thurs­day then Ger­many five days later, a place in the play-offs for next year’s fi­nals in Italy is pretty much out of the ques­tion but King’s side re­main in con­tention for sec­ond place in Group Five, which would be a sig­nif­i­cant im­prove­ment on the fourth place fin­ishes achieved in each of the last cam­paigns.

In ad­di­tion to Leam­ing­ton Spa-born Ship­ley, who es­tab­lished him­self in the Coven­try first team last sea­son, Mans­field Town de­fender Ryan Sweeney and Portsmouth for­ward Ro­nan Cur­tis re­turn from sus­pen­sion.
