The Football Association of Ireland has confirmed Paul McShane has been called into the squad for Saturday's friendly against Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Hull City defender McShane, 26, has 26 caps for the Republic of Ireland and will provide Giovanni Trapattoni with reinforcements for his squad.
Trapattoni has been hit with a string of minor injuries to players and will not risk any of them as Ireland's preparations for Euro 2012 continue.
Defenders John O'Shea, Richard Dunne, and Sean St Ledger will all miss the game, which has prompted the Italian maestro to turn to the defenders on the stand-by list.
The former Manchester United trainee has been given the nod over Seamus Coleman, who was also on the list, and he will be keen to make an impression.
