Richard Keogh and Jeff Hendrick have both been called up by the Republic of Ireland ahead of the upcoming round of international games for the full and Under-21 squads respectively.

Keogh has been named in the provisional squad by new manager Martin O`Neill for their clash with Serbia at the Aviva Stadium on Wednesday, 5th March. Derby`s captain has won two caps and scored one goal for his country with both previous appearances coming last year after representing Ireland at Under-21 level.

Hendrick has earned a recall to the Under-21 squad after suffering an ankle injury earlier this season that ruled him out for three months and he will be hoping to add to his six caps at this level when they take on Montenegro in a qualifying game in Dublin on the same evening. The midfielder has also won four full international caps prior to his spell on the sidelines last year.
