The Italian this afternoon named ten of the men who will line up against Raymond Domenech's side at Croke Park, but admitted he is yet to finalise who will play on the right side of midfield.
He will decide overnight on whether to start with attack-minded Celtic winger McGeady, or the more robust Lawrence, of Stoke.
However, there were otherwise few surprises with the bulk of the side the same as that which started against Italy last month.
A back four of John O'Shea, Sean St Ledger, Richard Dunne and Kevin Kilbane will line up ahead of keeper Shay Given, while Damien Duff will start on the left side of midfield with Glenn Whelan and Keith Andrews in the middle.
Kevin Doyle will partner skipper Robbie Keane in attack.
