*late call-up due to withdrawals

Notes
  • Senior international debut for substitute Kyle Vassell
  • Kyle Lafferty withdrew from the squad the night before it was due to meet, citing an Achilles injury. As a result, the Irish FA invoked FIFA's 'five-day rule', which prevented him from playing for Rangers against Hamilton Academical on October 21
