Burnley defender Stephen Ward has been included in Martin O Neill’s final 23-man Republic of Ireland squad for this summer’s European Championships.
Ward was confirmed on the plane to France following his consolation goal in Ireland’s final pre-tournament 2-1 friendly defeat to Belarus in Cork on Tuesday.
The Dubliner, 30, will join fellow Clarets Sam Vokes and Tom Heaton in France for the summer tournament, which begins on June 10.
Ireland kick off their campaign against Sweden on Monday, June 13, before entertaining Belgium on Saturday, June 18 and ending their group games against Italy on Wednesday, June 22.
Congratulations to Stephen, from everyone at Burnley Football Club.
