O'Dea withdraws from Ireland squad
Published : 06 Sep 2010 12:00:37
Republic of Ireland defender Darren O'Dea has returned to his club after being ruled out of Tuesday night's Euro 2012 qualifier against Andorra through injury.
The 23-year-old Ipswich player last week underwent a scan on a knee injury, which revealed a slight sprain, and although he was included in the party which flew out to Yerevan last Wednesday, he did not make the 18 for the 1-0 victory over Armenia.
O'Dea was able to train at Gannon Park in Malahide on Sunday, but has since been withdrawn and has gone back to Ipswich for treatment.
A fifth casualty, Paul McShane, is back in training after recovering from the hamstring problem which prevented his participation in Armenia.
