Given Must Prove He Is Ready

Giovanni Trapattoni has warned former Newcastle goalkeeper Shay Given he will have to prove his fitness ahead of Euro 2012.
Given is due to resume training in Montecatini, Italy next week after knee injury.
He was in good spirits before Saturday afternoon's 1-0 friendly victory over Bosnia-Herzegovina, which provided their side with a fitting send-off, but Trapattoni and his medical staff know they will have an important decision to make with the final squad list having to be submitted on Tuesday.
Giovanni Trapattoni: "He will have to show us on Monday he is ready. Richard Dunne showed that to us on Friday."
