The Republic of Ireland squad begin their preparations for next week's World Cup qualifier against Serbia this afternoon.

They're due to meet at the FAI National Training Centre.

Robbie Keane will captain the side in his last international game on Wednesday, when Martin O'Neill's side take on Oman in a friendly, before travelling to Serbia.

James McCarthy continues to be a doubt, due to a groin strain.
