JOHN O’Shea and Steven Fletcher have received international call-ups for next month’s Euro 2016 Qualifiers.

And the pair are expected to come up against each other in competitive action.

O’Shea, who has been named in Martin O’Neill’s provisional 33-man Republic of Ireland squad, will take on England in a friendly at the Aviva Stadium on Sunday, June 7, before hosting Scotland six days later in a UEFA Euro 2016 Group D qualifier.

Fletcher is likely to feature for Gordon Strachan’s side against O’Shea, with the Scots also taking on Qatar at Easter Road in a Vauxhall International Challenge match on Friday, June 5.
