Republic of Ireland boss Vera Pauw has named a 31-player pre-World Cup training camp squad again to be captained by Arsenals Katie McCabe.

The Republic will face co-hosts Australia in their World Cup opener on July 20, a contest which proved so popular that in January it was relocated to the tournaments largest venue, Sydneys 83,500-capacity Stadium Australia.

Pauws World Cup debutants have three scheduled warm-up games before that fixture, beginning with a sold-out June 22 encounter against Zambia at Dublins Tallaght Stadium.

McCabe along with three US-based players Denise OSullivan, Sinead Farrelly and Marissa Sheva will link up with the squad after the Zambia game.

Manchester United defender Aoife Mannion is a notable absence after tweaking her knee in training for her club last month, but the Football Association of Ireland (FAI) on Friday confirmed she will continue to be monitored ahead of the final squad selection of 23 players, to be whittled down by June 29.
