Paul McShane will captain Ireland in tonight’s training game with the Under-23 side …
Not a big fan of McShanes at all … but Sig. Trappatoni (arguably) has a better footballing brain than me !
The game will also be interesting because Shane Duffy (from Northern Ireland) will be sure to feature at some stage – this player is in the middle of an eligibility row having previously played at under-age level with the North.
Keith Fahey of Birmingham gets a belated chance as well. between tonight’s game and another training match on Friday (both behind closed doors), we should get a good idea of the strength of our peripheral squad.
The Ireland team is :
Westwood (Coventry); McShane (Hull), Duffy (Everton), O’Dea (Celtic), Cunningham (Manchester City); Lawrence (Stoke), Green (Derby Co), Fahey (Birmingham), Long (Reading); Best (Newcastle Utd), Sheridan (Celtic).
