McGoldrick last appeared for his country in June 2017, against Mexico at the MetLife Stadium, New Jersey.

But the former Ipswich Town striker had been widely tipped for a call-up following Mick McCarthy's appointment as Martin O'Neill's successor. The two men worked together at Portman Road and McCarthy has watched McGoldrick in action on numerous occasions since being remployed by the FAI.

The Republic resume their UEFA European Championship qualification campaign against Jeff Wood's team on March 23 before hosting Georgia, managed by Vladimir Weiss, three days later.
