Will Keane has received his first Republic of Ireland call-up in Stephen Kenny's 26-man squad for the upcoming games against Azerbaijan and Qatar.

Wigan Athletic striker Keane represented England at underage level but has declared for Ireland.

He has four goals to his name in the opening nine games of League One this season.

Ireland are set to travel to Baku for their qualifier against Azerbaijan on Saturday, October 9th before returning to Dublin to take on Qatar on Tuesday, October 12th at the Aviva Stadium.

Sheffield United left-back Enda Stevens, Derby County midfielder Jason Knight and Rotherham United winger Chiedozie Ogbene all return to the squad after injury ruled the trio out of the September matches.

Captain Seamus Coleman and defender Dara O'Shea are both ruled out through injury as Cyrus Christie retains his place in the squad, having been called up for the 1-1 draw against Serbia.
