Manchester City goalkeeper Ian Lawlor drafted into Republic of Ireland squad

Manchester City keeper Ian Lawlor is drafted into the Republic of Ireland squad for their remaining summer friendlies.

Manchester City goalkeeper Ian Lawlor has been called up to the Republic of Ireland squad for their remaining friendly matches this summer.

Manager Martin O'Neill originally named three keepers in his 32-man squad, although Darren Randolph has since withdrawn through injury while Rob Elliot is unavailable for the next match as he is getting married at the weekend.

Lawlor joins David Forde in the current party ahead of matches against Italy, Costa Rica and Portugal, although Elliot will be back available for the latter two.

The 19-year-old is yet to feature in City's first team but did play for the Republic of Ireland's Under-21 side in a friendly against Qatar's Olympic team on Saturday.

Derby County trio Richard Keogh, Jeff Hendrick and Conor Sammon will also join the squad this week following their exploits in the playoff final at the weekend, while Queens Park Rangers striker Kevin Doyle will meet up with his teammates on Thursday.
