International friendly: Republic of Ireland v Oman preview

Darron Gibson is set to make a return to the Republic of Ireland team for their friendly against Oman after almost a year out through injury.

The Everton man has not played since tearing his cruciate ligament playing against Kazakhstan last October.

Republic of Ireland boss Martin O'Neill hinted Shay Given will be given game time on his return to the squad, however defender Joey O'Brien has returned to West Ham after pulling out of the squad with a knee injury.

James McCarthy is unlikely to feature in the friendly due to blisters on his feet and is being rested ahead of Sunday's Euro 2016 opening qualifier against Georgia in Tbilisi.
