The 30-year-old, who has just completed his first season for Leeds, is hoping to appear at Wembley on May 29 when the Republic launch their summer campaign with a friendly against England.

Giovanni Trapattoni's side will then play Georgia in another friendly at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin the following Sunday (June 2) before their World Cup qualifier against the Faroe Islands at the same venue on Friday, June 7.

The Irish are scheduled to take on world and European champions Spain in a third summer friendly at New York's Yankee Stadium on Tuesday, June 11.

Pontefract-born Green, who made 36 appearances for Leeds this season following his arrival last summer from Derby, has won 14 caps for the Republic of Ireland.

S I've always envisioned him as a Pirlo or a Scholes, though he needs some of Andy Murray's conditioning and shiny, ankle supports to keep his own from buckling under the tackles that will (inevitably) come his way. He's got the physique and low centre of gravity to flourish, but needs to make himself more resilient.

Time For Another Wenger U-Turn On Wilshere?

A

s a United fan I fell I can say this without accusation of bias, Sergio Aguero is for me the only player close to Ronaldo or Messi, what goes against him is his injury record, Hazard is good in fits but doesn't give enough end product in my eyes, Tevez would be 4th for me
