Midfielder drafted into the Republic of Ireland Under-21 squad for the first time.

John O'Sullivan has today joined up with the Republic of Ireland Under-21 squad for their final UEFA Under-21 Championship qualifier against Italy.

The Rovers midfielder wasn't part of the initial squad for the final group matches, but with Ireland now unable to qualify for the play-off stage of the competition, coach Noel King has taken the opportunity to blood some of his younger players for the final group game in Casarano.

O'Sullivan has represented Ireland at all levels up to Under-19 and has featured for the Rovers first team this summer in the pre-season matches against Go Ahead Eagles and Cork City.
