They will be involved as the Irish face two important UEFA Euro 2020 qualifiers against Georgia and Switzerland.

All three have been regulars for the Blades so far in the Premier League this season, helping the newly-promoted side pick up eight points from seven matches.

With Richard Keogh now out injured until late 2020 and Shane Duffy also missing, it means that Egan is likely to start at centre-back in both matches.

Stevens is unable to play in their first game against Georgia due to suspension, but having established himself as Ireland’s first-choice left-back of late, starting six of their last seven matches, it is likely that he will play against Switzerland.

Some of Sheffield United’s supporters are happy to see that the trio are all getting international recognition, although some of them were keen to point out that they hope they all return to their club without any injuries.
