Blackpool’s CJ Hamilton has received his first call-up to the Republic of Ireland squad for their upcoming Nations League matches.
Ireland are set to face Armenia, Scotland and Ukraine next month, followed by a second rescheduled clash with Ukraine in Poland.
The 27-year-old was born in London but moved to Waterford in Ireland at a young age and also qualifies to play for them through his Irish mother.
Hamilton has never featured for an international youth side and this will be his first bit of experience playing for a national team.
The winger claimed two goals and four assists in 24 league matches for Blackpool this season.
