Trap set for Euro 2012 farewell friendly (video)

Updated: May 25, 2012

Republic of Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni’s injury concerns ahead of the farewell friendly international against Bosnia are easing.

Shay Given has been given all clear to resume training after a few days rest following a trip to a London specialist. Richard Dunne and John O’Shea have also indicated they will be ready to resume full training next week but the trio are absentees from the Irish starting 11 in Saturday’s friendly.

The squad departs for training base on Sunday to prepare for opening game on June 10th. Republic of Ireland stars Glenn Whelan, Jon Walters and Stephen Kelly have been looking ahead to the Championships. Whelan feels that the underdog status suits the boys in green going into Euro 2012.
