Mayo make one change for Kerry clash that all their fans wanted to see

Just one change from the team that emphatically beat Roscommon, but what a boost it is for Mayo fans.

Stephen Rochford has been able to recall the 2016 Footballer of the Year to his Mayo team for Sunday's All-Ireland Football Championship semi-final with Kerry at Croke Park.

This lad is back in the starting line-up.

Yes, Lee Keegan is back and he'll be wearing 5 when he faces The Kingdom.

Rochford has replaced Paddy Durcan with Keegan and left his starting 15 otherwise untouched. Mayo destroyed Roscommon in the quarter final replay and their management team were delighted at the likes of Seamus O'Shea, Keith Higgins and Kevin McLoughlin all stepping up with performances of the summer so far.

Keegan was on the bench for that last eight victory but was not required as Mayo took the scoring to the Rossies early on.

Donal Vaughan starts in defence and will earn his 100th cap on Sunday once the ball is thrown in.
