O'Halloran receives international call

The 19-year-old left-back was drafted into the party after Liam Miller, Stephen Elliot, Stephen Ireland, Derek Geary and Caleb Folan were all ruled out. O'Halloran receives his maiden international call up, having represented the Republic at all youth levels. He is yet to feature for Villa, who he joined from Cobh Ramblers in 2003 though he spent three months on loan at Wycombe this season, featuring eleven times including the 1-1 draw with Chelsea in the Carling Cup.
