DRFC Former midfielder on stand-by for Euro's

Former Doncaster Rovers midfielder Paul Green is one of five players named on the standby list by Republic of Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni for this summer`s Euro 2012 finals.

Green narrowly misses out on the 23 man squad having not played for Ireland

The 29 year old made his debut for Ireland in May 2010 against Paraguay and he scored his first international goal in their next game against Algeria three days later.

Green was a regular for Ireland the following season before a cruciate knee ligament injury ruled him out for over five months.

The midfielder has made just one appearance for Ireland this season in their 2-2 home international friendly against the Czech Republic in February, when he came off the bench.

Green is out of contract at Derby this summer and a free agent after rejecting a new deal offered by the club.

The Yorkshire born midfielder started his career at Doncaster and he helped the side climb from the conference to the championship during seven years and over 275 appearances for the club.

The full squad for Euro 2012:

Given (Aston Villa), Westwood (Sunderland), Forde (Millwall);

O'Shea (Sunderland), Kelly (Fulham), Ward (Wolves), Dunne (Aston Villa), St Ledger (Leicester), O'Dea (Leeds), Foley (Wolves);

Whelan (Stoke), Andrews (West Brom), Fahey (Birmingham), Gibson (Everton), Duff (Fulham), McGeady (Spartak Moscow), Hunt (Wolves), McClean (Sunderland);

Keane (LA Galaxy), Doyle (Wolves), Long, Cox (both West Brom), Walters (Stoke).

Randolph (Motherwell), McShane (Crystal Palace), Green (Derby County), Coleman (Everton), Keogh (Millwall).
