Luton Town striker James Collins has been handed a recall by Stephen Kenny to boost his striking options in the wake of David McGoldrick's shock decision to retire from international football.

And Kenny has also named Seamus Coleman in his squad for a triple header, starting with next week's friendly against England at Wembley, even though the Everton defender is a major doubt due to injury.

Kenny has named a 26-man squad for the three games, though Jack Byrne will sit out the England game and will hook up with the squad for their game against Wales in Cardiff and then the home tie with Bulgaria.
