New look Ireland team line out to take on Serbia

SHANE DUFFY drops to the bench tonight ahead of Ireland's game against Serbia.

The two-time international player of the year is replaced by Newcastle's Ciaran Clark, who starts alongside Dara O'Shea at the back.

Somewhat surprisingly, Jason Knight starts on the bench, while Cullen, Molumby and Browne make up a dynamic midfield.

Aaron Connolly and Callum Robinson start up top, while Matt Doherty and Seamus Coleman start together in what looks like a back five.

Dublin youngster Troy Parrott is unlucky to miss out on Ireland's matchday squad for Wednesday night's game against Serbia.

Ronan Curtis, Ryan Manning, and the uncapped Conor Coventry join Parrott in not being part of the 23-man squad who will be available for selection on the night.

While the four lads made Ireland's squad and trained with the team, UEFA rules state that you can only name 23 players for the actual squad, at least two of whom must be goalkeepers.

And in case you're wondering, VAR will not be in use tonight...
