Two Trap changes

GIOVANNI TRAPATTONI has made just two changes from the senior Irish side which started against the U23s on Tuesday for this evening’s training game against the Irish Juniors at Gannon Park (5.30pm).

Liam Lawrence and Kevin Foley both start tonight in place of Anthony Stokes and Keith Fahey. Juniors manager Gerry Smith will use tonight’s game as preparation for the Autumn UEFA Regions Cup, which will be hosted in Dublin.

Meanwhile, Trapattoni will be lending his weight to the ticket sales push for next week’s friendlies when he meets with fans at the FAI Umbro Store in Carrolls on Suffolk Street, Dublin for one hour from 1.30pm tomorrow. Single match tickets for Tuesday’s game against Paraguay are now available through Ticketmaster and the FAI Umbro stores in Carrolls, Westmoreland Street and Suffolk Street from today.
