Duff misses Armenia game

The 31-year-old Fulham winger has withdrawn because of a calf
problem picked up during Saturday’s 2-2 Premier League draw at
Fulham. Duff, who has 84 senior international caps, will be
assessed by his club and could yet join up with the squad for the
home clash with Andorra next Tuesday evening. He joins Blackburn
midfielder Keith Andrews, who has a groin injury, on the sidelines
for the start of the Republic’s qualifying campaign.
