Ireland team to play Andorra named
Republic of Ireland boss Giovanni Trapattoni has named his starting eleven to face Andorra tomorrow night.
Despite rumours earlier in the week that Trapattoni would start Keith Fahey in midfield alongside Keith Andrews, the Italian has chosen to stick with his preferred partnership of Glenn Whelan and Andrews. John O’Shea and Sean St. Ledger return to the starting eleven, while Richard Dunne misses out through suspension.
As Kevin Kilbane is still injured, Wolves defender Stephen Ward keeps his place at left back. Kevin Doyle is preferred to Shane Long and partners Robbie Keane up front.
Republic of Ireland team:
Shay Given, John O’Shea, Sean St Ledger, Darren O’Dea, Stephen Ward, Damien Duff, Keith Andrews, Glenn Whelan, Aidan McGeady, Kevin Doyle, Robbie Keane.
