Republic of Ireland boss Martin O’Neill has been dealt a blow after winger James McClean limped out of training.
The Wigan midfielder was driven away from the Republic’s Malaise training ground to undergo a scan on Tuesday morning after pulling up during the warm up.
McClean’s left ankle was heavily strapped, leaving O’Neil with a fresh injury concern.
Full-back Stephen Ward was due to undergo a procedure on Monday to alleviate irritation from screws in his ankle, while winger Aiden McGeady has not played for club Everton since January 31.
McClean’s injury could leave his manager with a major decision to make with question marks now hanging over both his specialist wide-men ahead of Sunday night’s Euro 2016 qualifier against Group D leaders Poland.
However, he had earlier been boosted by the arrivals of skipper Robbie Keane and fellow striker Jon Walters and Bournemouth midfielder Harry Arter, who is meeting up with the senior squad for the first time.
