Richard Dunne is in Ireland's starting line-up

The 33-year-old returned to the starting line-up for a competitive match for his country for the first time since the Euro 2012 finals, while there was a place too for Wigan winger James McClean as understudy to the injured Aiden McGeady.

Sweden boss Erik Hamren included star striker Ibrahimovic in his starting line-up and handed a national record-equalling 143rd cap to 37-year-old midfielder Anders Svensson.
