All Ireland Football Final build-up

Kerry have named an unchanged 15 for Sunday's final as they aim to become the first team to win back-to-back titles since their opponents, Cork, did it in 1989 and 1990. Cork meanwhile have had conflicting injury news. Anthony Lynch is almost certain to be out having broken his hand in training, while James Masters is set top return, just five weeks after suffering a broken jaw.
Whatever team Cork select I predict a fierce and close contest. In many ways it is set up as a forwards final. Both inside forward lines have the edge over their full backs lines.
This game may come down to who wins midfield and the quality of service they send in to sad forward lines, as well as the key battles between on one side, Donaghy v Canty, and on the other side, O'Se v Masters/ O'Connor.
Up the rebels!
