Rovers defender Derrick Williams has been named in the Republic of Ireland squad for a pair of upcoming internationals later this month.

Williams will be eager to play a part in the Dublin double-header, with a friendly against New Zealand on Thursday November 14th coming four days before the crucial Euro 2020 showdown with Denmark.

Williams has two caps to his name, having made his international debut against France in May 2018 prior to representing his country against Georgia in the last international break.

There is no place in the final squad for fellow Rovers defender Darragh Lenihan and Greg Cunningham, with injury keeping the defensive duo out of Mick McCarthy's current plans.

Williams, who has featured regularly Rovers this season, will join up with the Ireland squad following Saturday's trip to Leeds United.

Good luck, Del!
