Keane makes the cut but Arter out

Euro 2016 squad announced

Captain Robbie Keane has been selected in the 23-man Republic of Ireland squad for Euro 2016 but Harry Arter misses out through injury.

The Bournemouth midfielder sustained a thigh injury in training on Monday and missed the Boys In Green's 2-1 defeat to Belarus at Turner's Cross, Cork.

Keane, who suffered a calf injury on Saturday, is selected along with James McCarthy who sat out Monday's match with a hamstring complaint.

Keiren Westwood - who gets the nod ahead of Millwall's David Forde - Aiden McGeady, David Meyler and Stephen Quinn also made the cut with Darron Gibson, Eunan O'Kane and David McGoldrick among those who miss out.

Youngster Callum O'Dowd impressed after being introduced in the second half but his late bid for inclusion failed.

Martin O'Neill announced the line-up after some last minute post-match consultation with his backroom staff.

Republic of Ireland squad:

Goalkeepers: Shay Given, Darren Randolph, Keiren Westwood.

Defenders: Cyrus Christie, Seamus Coleman, Richard Keogh, Shane Duffy, John O'Shea, Ciaran Clark, Stephen Ward

Midfielders: Robbie Brady, Aiden McGeady, David Meyler, Jeff Hendrick, Stephen Quinn, James McCarthy, Glenn Whelan, Wes Hoolahan, James McClean

Forwards: Robbie Keane, Shane Long, Daryl Murphy, Jonathan Walters
