Keane back in Republic squad

01 March 2010 09:28

Captain Robbie Keane has rejoined the Republic of Ireland squad for Tuesday's friendly against Brazil after recovering from a knee injury.

The Tottenham striker, who is on loan at Celtic, pulled out on Sunday after aggravating the problem in yesterday's Old Firm derby.

But he underwent a further medical examination this evening and was given the green light to rejoin Giovanni Trapattoni's men ahead of the prestigious match at the Emirates Stadium.
