Leeds United duo Andy Keogh and Darren O`Dea have been included in the Republic Of Ireland squad, for their crucial European 2012 play off games against Estonia.
The on loan duo have been named in the 26-man squad by Giovanni Trapattoni today (Friday) ahead of the games in Estonia on November 11th and at the Aviva Stadium, Dublin on November 15th.
Both O`Dea and Keogh have been in great form recently for Leeds with O`Dea striking up a good partnership with Tom Lees at the heart of the defence.
He is also chipping in at the other end and he has scored two goals in his last three championship games, including the winner deep into stoppage time at Peterborough last weekend.
O`Dea started the recent qualifiers in Russia and Andorra before sitting on the bench in the crucial final group game against Armenia.
He will be hoping to add to the twelve caps he has already won for his country.
Keogh has quickly won admiration from the Leeds fans with his hard working displays for Leeds and he scored his second goal for the club at Peterborough since joining on loan from Wolves in August.
His only goal in twenty-two appearances for his country came in Giovanni Trapattoni`s first game in charge, in the 1-1 draw with Serbia in 2008.
Also included in the squad is former Leeds player Robbie Keane.
