Only can argue whether Butler should be in for Delap? Let just hope Reid and Clinton are fit so they start...... Newsroom: As expected, Roy Keane was not named as one of Mick McCarthy's 25-man sqaud for the friendly against Finland in Helsinki later this month. Keane has stated since his public bust-up with the Irish manager during the preparations for the World Cup finals in Japan and Korea on the island of Saipan, which resulted in him being sent home in disgrace, that he will not play for the Republic of Ireland again until there has been a change in management. While there is no place in the squad for the United skipper, McCarthy has recalled several players who missed out on a place in his World Cup squad. Celtic's Colin Healy, Southampton's Rory Delap, Leeds United's Stephen McPhail and Tottenham duo Stephen Carr and Gary Doherty all return. There is also a place for Hibernian goalkeeper Nicky Colgan. Wimbledon striker David Connolly and Wolves winger Mark Kennedy were not considered because they are both injured. McCarthy has not yet named a captain to succeed Steven Staunton, who took over the armband following Keane's sudden departure but has now retired from international football. Irish squad: S Given (Newcastle Utd), D Kiely (Charlton), N Colgan (Hibernian); S Carr (Tottenham), S Finnan (Fulham), K Cunningham (Birmingham), G Kelly (Leeds Utd), A O'Brien (Newcastle), G Breen (West Ham), R Dunne (Manchester City), I Harte (Leeds Utd); J McAteer (Sunderland), M Holland (Ipswich), K Kilbane (Sunderland), S Reid (Millwall), C Healy (Celtic), M Kinsella (Charlton), L Carsley (Everton), R Delap (Southampton), Robbie Keane (Leeds Utd), C Morrison (Birmingham), D Duff (Blackburn), S McPhail (Leeds Utd), R Sadlier (Millwall), G Doherty (Tottenham).
