MILLWALL duo Andy Keogh and David Forde are expected to be named in the the Republic of Ireland team for a friendly against Oman on Tuesday evening.

Giovanni Trapattoni, whose side beat Kazakhstan in a World Cup qualifier last Friday, plans to field an experimental line-up for the match, which is being played at Fulham's Craven Cottage.

Forde will be making only his second start for his country between the sticks, having kept a clean sheet against Italy in June 2011 on his full debut.

Incidentally, Keogh has not started a match for Ireland since the 2-0 victory over the the Azzurri but will line-up in midfield against Oman.
