Kevin Doyle and Kevin Foley are both in the Republic of Ireland squad for the friendly with Brazil on Tuesday 2nd March.
But one absentee is Stephen Ward, which surprised a few pundits as he has been in good form recently.
'If Stephen Ward is playing well for me in the Premier League - which he is - then it's up to the manager of the national team to decide to pick him, not me.' McCarthy told Wolves Official Website.
