No injury worries for Trapattoni

Republic of Ireland boss Giovanni Trapattoni has no fresh injury worries ahead of Tuesday night’s Euro 2012 qualifier against Andorra.

Goalkeeper Shay Given sat out the latter part of training at Gannon Park in Malahide this morning, but assistant manager Marco Tardelli later confirmed that was simply to give him a rest.

Defenders Paul McShane and Darren O’Dea, who were struggling with hamstring and knee injuries respectively last week, also took part in the session.

Ireland head into the game having returned from their opening Group B fixture in Armenia on Friday evening with a 1-0 victory.
