Brentford defender John Egan has been handed his Republic of Ireland debut when they face Iceland.
The Boys In Green drew 0-0 with Wales on Friday night but it came at a cost as Seamus Coleman suffered a horrific broken leg after a reckless Neil Taylor challenge.
The Bees star has been in fine form for the west Londoners, scoring twice on his home debut against Ipswich and earned his first call up earlier this month.
And manager Martin O'Neill has decided to give Egan a game against England's Euro 2016 destroyers, Iceland.
Egan's father, John, was a leading Gaelic footballer and now Egan junior can be a hero for his country in his own right.
The defender said in July: “My father was a Gaelic footballer back in Ireland and really well known. He played for County Kerry and won six All Ireland medals, which is like an FA Cup medal over there. In fact, in Ireland, I'm known as John Egan's son. I will carry that tag for the rest of my life!
“My mum also played soccer at a high level and won a League of Ireland medal too, so growing up I was playing every sport. To be honest, football, Gaelic and hurling were all quite equal until I was 12 or 13, but the other two aren't professional sports, which gave football the edge.
“I started going on trial to various clubs in the UK and decided football was the one for me. Maybe one day I'll go back and play Gaelic or hurling for my local club.”
