It will have capped off a memorable three months for the Cork native after making his Premier League and Champions League bows for Liverpool again in December.
Nevertheless, whereas Kenny had named Kelleher in his 29-man squad and hoped that he had overcome the belly damage which has stored him sidelined for eight of Liverpool’s final 9 video games, he has now returned to Merseyside.
Eire confirmed the information on Sunday simply three days out from their opening recreation.
Kelleher had been in line to make his senior debut as common No. 1 Darren Randolph is sidelined with hip and thigh points, which left the door ajar.
However his ongoing damage had one other factor in thoughts and he’ll now proceed his restoration again in Liverpool, which means Rochdale’s Gavin Bazunu, on mortgage from Man Metropolis, is predicted to get the nod.
