Hourihan ruled out of European qualifier against Ukraine

Goalkeeper Marie Hourihan will miss the Republic of Ireland's European Championship qualifier away to Ukraine.

The Ireland number one has been ruled out of next Friday's game due to a dislocated finger, while a number of other players are on standby ahead of the squad meeting up in Germany for a training camp.

The rest of Vera Pauw's squad is unchanged from last month's defeat to away to Germany.

A win for Ireland would secure a Play-Off place with one group game to play and the Girls in Green are also in contention to qualify as one of the best runners-up, which guarantees automatic qualification.

The nine group winners and the three best runners-up (not counting results against the sixth-placed team) qualify directly for the final tournament, while the remaining six runners-up advance to the two-legged Play-Offs that will be played in April 2021.

Ireland beat Ukraine 3-2 in Tallaght Stadium in October 2019 in Pauw's first game in charge.

Republic of Ireland Squad:

Goalkeepers: Courtney Brosnan (West Ham United), Grace Moloney (Reading), Niamh Reid-Burke (Peamount United)

Defenders: Harriet Scott (Reading), Keeva Keenan (Celtic), Louise Quinn (Fiorentina), Diane Caldwell (SC Sand), Claire O'Riordan (MSV Duisburg), Aine O'Gorman (Peamount United)

Midfielders: Niamh Fahey (Liverpool), Jamie Finn (Shelbourne), Denise O'Sullivan (Brighton & Hove Albion - on loan from NC Courage), Alli Murphy (London City Lionesses), Niamh Farrelly (Peamount United), Megan Connolly (Brighton & Hove Albion), Hayley Nolan (London City Lionesses), Ruesha Littlejohn (Leicester City), Ellen Molloy (Wexford Youths)

Forwards: Katie McCabe (Arsenal), Heather Payne (Florida State University), Leanne Kiernan (West Ham United), Amber Barrett (FC Koln), Rianna Jarrett (Brighton & Hove Albion), Kyra Carusa (HB Hoge)
