Keane takes full part in training

Republic of Ireland skipper Robbie Keane was able to train this morning before flying out to Armenia.

The Tottenham striker, who trained wearing a knee brace yesterday, completed the session at Malahide today without the support.

Richard Dunne again sat out training with a muscle injury, while he was joined on the sidelines by Darren O’Dea, who yesterday underwent a scan on a sprained knee.

However, both men are to travel with manager Giovanni Trapattoni optimistic that Dunne in particular will be able to resume training tomorrow ahead of Friday night’s opening Euro 2012 qualifier in Yerevan.
