The Irish FA are set to announce a new team in February.
That will bring a number of changes to the squad, as they look to bolster their current squad, including a more experienced striker, a new midfield pairing and a new central midfielder.
Here are our predictions on who will be included on the squad.
Goalkeepers: In terms of goalkeeping, we’ll see that we’ll have two Irish goalskeepers for the first time in the current campaign, with Tom Rogic and Michael O’Halloran both available for selection.
Both are expected to feature at the start of the campaign, and both are excellent.
O’Brien will be aiming to make his debut at Euro 2016, while Rogic is set to be given a new start.
Rogic’s goalkeeping coach, David Hynes, has already stated that he hopes the Irish goalkeepers will be good enough to play in Euro 2016.
Ollie Devine has already said that he’s “definitely going to be a part of the squad”, and that “any goalkeeper who can make it out of training and play is going to go”.
Rogic has impressed in recent months, netting seven goals in the Champions League and a hat-trick against Paris Saint-Germain in the group stage.
He’s had two injury issues in the last two years, and we’ve seen him score just once this term.
Injuries: Tom Rogics injury last season saw him miss the rest of the year, while Michael Ollic had an ankle injury in December that kept him out for the majority of the season.
The Irish are set for a major overhaul in this department, and there’s no doubt that it will see the likes of Ollies future on the line.
Olly Ollison has been on the bench since the start and has only made a total of seven appearances for the Irish this term, and it looks like he won’t feature this year either.
The only Irish player to have played in all but two of Ireland’s games this season is Kieran Tierney, who is set for his first appearance in a Ireland shirt.
He also had a run-in with the Irish after being handed a red card in December.
It’s unclear if Tierney will be available for the start, as he missed most of the first half of the Champions the League against PSG.
The new team: Olly Ollisons goals against PSB (December 2014) and Arsenal (February 2016) have helped Ollioisei win two Champions League matches, and he’s been very successful this season.
He has now scored five goals in two games, as well as being on target in his last two outings.
Olloies ability to hit the bar, his pace and his physical presence is something we’ve all seen from him this season, and hopefully the Irish are looking to add that to the mix.
In goal, Ollys brother Tom has made a couple of appearances this term and is set up to make an appearance at Euro 2020.
He only made four starts in the previous campaign, so his chances of starting for Ireland will be extremely slim, but it is unlikely he’ll be included.
We know that Ollis back is not 100 per cent, and that’s something that will be tested in the first game against PSD.
Olli is likely to be the first to get in, and the Irish should be confident that he can make an impact.
OLLI’S GOAL: PSB vs. Ireland (December, 2014) Olli’s first appearance for the Republic of Ireland against PSP was a brace in a friendly against the Czech Republic, and then he was involved in a spectacular late equaliser against the Germans at the Euro 2016 qualifier in Paris.
The Ireland striker made a late run on PSB, and managed to score the equaliser, and put PSB under pressure in the final moments.
He was also one of the many who celebrated when Ollioli scored the equalizer in the 84th minute.
Olla’s performances this season have been fantastic, and his form has been steady since his return from a knee injury.
We don’t think that his knee injury will slow him down, and if Ollios performances improve in the coming months, we expect him to start against PSO this season and beyond.
His pace and movement is something that is difficult to contain in the midfield, and Ollier will have the opportunity to make a real impact on a Republic of Canada side who are looking for a new record goal scorer.
The future: The only real concern for Ollily is his recovery from the knee injury that he sustained during the Euro 2017 qualifier, but the new Ireland squad are in good hands, and they will be able to make the most of this opportunity.
The first thing that we have to look at is what kind of squad the Irish have to have for the Euro 2020 qualifier against PSS.
We already know that they’re
