Trapattoni weighing up otions

Published Add your comment

Republic of Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni is yet to decide who will partner skipper Robbie Keane in Friday's Euro 2012 play-off first leg clash with Estonia.

Stoke frontman Jonathan Walters or West Brom's Simon Cox will get the nod to replace the suspended Kevin Doyle, but the Italian will finalise his selection overnight.

Stephen Kelly will take over from the injured John O'Shea at right-back, but Trapattoni, who confirmed the bulk of his team at a press conference at the A Le Coq Arena, will otherwise field his strongest available line-up.
