Brady heads for home after picking up groin injury in Ireland training

Robbie Brady is out of the Republic of Ireland’s World Cup qualifier against the Faroe Islands.

The Hull winger sat out training at Malahide this morning with a groin injury, and will return home tomorrow.

Assistant manager Marco Tardelli confirmed Brady’s impending departure, which will mean he misses next Friday’s qualifier and the friendlies against Georgia and Spain, in New York, either side of it.

Tardelli said: “Robbie has a little problem and I think tomorrow, he will go back home. It’s not a very big problem, but it’s better he rests.”

Goalkeeper David Forde, who had his right knee heavily strapped yesterday, trained in the gym, but is unlikely to figure against the Georgians on Sunday, while full-back Marc Wilson has recovered from a hamstring injury.
