Keith Fahey's Euro 2012 dream has ended after he was sent home from the Republic of Ireland squad because of injury.

The Birmingham midfielder, who scored the opening goal of the qualifying campaign in Armenia, has been struggling with a groin problem since he joined up with the squad.

Former Derby midfielder Paul Green, who is currently unattached, has been drafted in as a replacement.
