Damien Delaney has been called up to the Republic of Ireland squad for the forthcoming tie against Cyprus.

The fixture that takes place at Croke Park sees the return of Damien Duff, and with Eire relatively short on defensive cover following the absence of Stephen Kelly and Steve Finnan, Damien Delaney may be given another chance in the left back berth.

The R`s ever present full back has been on the periphery of the international set-up of late, playing second fiddle to versatile Wigan Athletic player Kevin Kilbane.

The squad is as follows:

Shay Given (Newcastle United)
Dean Kiely (West Brom)
Joe Murphy (Scunthorpe United)
Alex Bruce (Ipswich Town)
Damien Delaney (QPR)
Richard Dunne (Manchester City)
Kevin Kilbane (Wigan Athletic)
Joey O’Brien (Bolton Wanderers)
John O’Shea (Manchester United)
Paul McShane (Sunderland)
Stephen Hunt (Reading)
Aiden McGeady (Glasgow Celtic)
Damien Duff (Newcastle United)
Liam Miller (Sunderland)
Andy Reid (Sunderland)
Glenn Whelan (Stoke City)
Kevin Doyle (Reading)
Robbie Keane (Liverpool)
Andy Keogh (Wolves)
Shane Long (Reading)
Daryl Murphy (Sunderland)
