Michael Obafemi is to be given more time to consider his international future despite being part of the Republic of Ireland squad for the games against Northern Ireland and Denmark.
The Southampton striker was born in Dublin to Nigerian parents but moved to London as a child and as a result he also qualifies to play for England and Nigeria.
He was included in the Republic of Ireland squad for the double-header against Northern Ireland and Denmark and he would be committed to the Boys in Green if he were to make an appearance against the latter.
While he could feature against Northern Ireland at the Aviva Stadium, Obafemi has indicated to manager Martin O'Neill that he would like longer to consider his international future and therefore will not travel to Denmark for the UEFA Nations League tie.
"I haven't spoken to his parents but I've spoken to him," said O'Neill.
"He's enjoyed the training and has done really well. I think he's really enjoyed it but, in terms of decisions, I think that's a bit off.
"He's got things to think about. I wouldn't be rushing him."
Wolves defender Matt Doherty will miss the games due to a facial injury but Robbie Brady is fit to play, while Glenn Whelan will captain the team on what is likely to be his final international appearance.
"It has been an honour to play for my country," Whelan said ahead of his 85th cap.
"I would have taken your hand off to get one cap growing up, so to get 85 has been amazing.
"I would never officially retire and say I'm not available for my country. I have told Martin if he ever needs me I will be available for him.
"Saying that, I know tomorrow is probably the last time I will play for my country."
