Ireland will face Denmark on November 11th in Copenhagen, and November 14th in Lansdowne Road, Dublin.
The Provisional Squad is as follows:
Darren Randolph, Keiren Westwood, Rob Elliot, Colin Doyle
Cyrus Christie, Matt Doherty, Paul McShane, Richard Keogh, Shane Duffy, Ciaran Clark, John O'Shea, Stephen Ward
Aiden McGeady, Daryl Horgan, Alan Browne, Glenn Whelan, Conor Hourihane, Harry Arter, James McCarthy, Robbie Brady, Jeff Hendrick, David Meyler, Eunan O'Kane, Wes Hoolahan, Callum O'Dowda, Jonny Hayes, James McClean
Shane Long, Daryl Murphy, David McGoldrick, Sean Maguire, Scott Hogan, Aiden O'Brien
James McCarthy will be making a return after recovering from a knee injury, which left him out of both club and international action since February, despite being named as part of the provisional squad for the Wales and Moldova matches.
Shane Long has also returned to the squad after injury prevented him from playing in the Wales match, as is the case with Shane Duffy who has recovered from a groin issue recently to play a decisive part in Brighton's 3 - 0 victory against West Ham over the weekend.
However, Jonathan Walters is absent from the team after the 34-year old Burnley striker suffered a knee injury back in September.
