The Dublin players celebrate with the Sam Maguire Cup following victory against Mayo

The Dublin team named to face Roscommon in the Allianz Football League at Dr Hyde Park tomorrow includes thirteen of last year's All-Ireland winning 15.

Ballymun Kickhams' Evan Comerford deputises for Cluxton in goal while Cormac Costello comes in for the injured Rock.

Mick Galvin will patrol the line as his ex-Dublin and Na Fianna teammate Dessie Farrell serves a 12-week ban.

Dublin (Allianz FL Division 1 v Roscommon): Evan Comerford; Michael Fitzsimons, David Byrne, Jonny Cooper; Eoin Murchan, John Small, Robert McDaid; Brian Fenton, James McCarthy; Niall Scully, Ciaran Kilkenny, Sean Bugler; Paddy Small, Con O'Callaghan, Cormac Costello.
