Everton midfielder Lee Carsley has been left out of the Republic of Ireland squad for next week´s friendly in Denmark.

Manager Steve Staunton insists the 33-year-old is still part of his plans but does not feel it necessary to include him for the fixture in Aarhus.

Staunton said: "When Lee came back into the squad last year we agreed that if I was not going to use him I wouldn´t bring him around the world to sit on the bench."
