Sunderland young gun James McClean will make his first start for the Republic of Ireland national team tomorrow.

Also in Giovanni Trapattoni's starting line-up is goalkeeper Keiren Westwood, defenders Paul McShane, Richard Dunne, Sean St Ledger and Stephen Ward, midfielders Damien Duff, Darron Gibson, Glenn Whelan and McClean and strikers Kevin Doyle and Robbie Keane.
