Strong presence for Republic friendly.

Four Sunderland players have been called up to the Republic of Ireland squad for the forthcoming friendly international against Greece.

Regulars John O’Shea and Keiren Westwood have been named ahead of the game, which will take place at the Aviva Stadium, Dublin, on November 14.

Meanwhile James McClean has also been included alongside David Meyler, who wins a recall.

The quartet will leave to link up with the squad following the Everton game next weekend.
