Trapattoni unsure over Keane partner
Republic of Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni is yet to decide
who will partner skipper Robbie Keane in Friday night’s Euro 2012
play-off first leg clash with Estonia.
Stoke frontman Jonathan Walters or West Brom’s Simon Cox will
get the nod to replace the suspended Kevin Doyle, but the Italian
will finalise his selection overnight.
Stephen Kelly will take over from the injured John O’Shea at
right-back, but Trapattoni, who confirmed the bulk of his team at a
press conference at the A Le Coq Arena Thursday evening, will
otherwise field his strongest available line-up.
Team: Shay Given; Stephen Kelly, Sean St Ledger,
Richard Dunne, Stephen Ward;
Damien Duff, Glenn Whelan, Keith Andrews, Aiden McGeady;
Robbie Keane, Jonathan
