Trapattoni upset to disappoint Foley

Published Add your comment

Giovanni Trapattoni has revealed Paul McShane was handed Kevin Foley's ticket to Euro 2012 amid fears of a crisis in central defence.

Wolves full-back Foley was devastated to be told on Tuesday that he would not be going to the finals despite being named in the initial 23-man party on May 7. McShane was only drafted in as the 24th member of the squad last week after being called up from stand-by with Richard Dunne, John O'Shea and Sean St Ledger all struggling with injury.

Although Dunne and St Ledger have since returned to action, Darren O'Dea has joined O'Shea on the sidelines in recent days, and Trapattoni said: "We based our decision on the fact of the centre-halves - Dunne, O'Shea and O'Dea - all have problems. We are not sure if they will be 100%."
