Ipswich Town striker David McGoldrick will not be with the Republic of Ireland squad in Copenhagen for the first leg of their World Cup play-off with Denmark.

The Blues forward was initially called up for the two-legged tie, but was then left out when the squad was cut down as he continues to struggle with an ongoing groin problem.

Ireland boss Martin O’Neill had said ‘there was still room on the plane’ for McGoldrick if he proved his fitness, but he will not be making the flight per the Republic’s squad list released this afternoon.

Former Blues Daryl Murphy and Conor Hourihane do travel, as does Jon Walters who along with Seamus Coleman is with the squad in a ‘supporting role’ at a time when they are sidelined with injuries.

The first leg, which could also involve Ipswich left back Jonas Knudsen, will be played at Parken in Copenhagen on Saturday, with the return in Dublin on Tuesday. The winners reach the World Cup.
