Finnan missed Saturday´s 2-2 draw with Slovakia with a knee problem after staying in Liverpool to receive further treatment but has failed to recover sufficiently, while Wolves´ Darren Potter also missed out through injury and Stephen Ireland withdrew from the squad on Sunday.
Staunton told www.fai.ie: "It is unfortunate that Steve and Darren have withdrawn due to injury but we still have 20 players in the squad which will still give us plenty of options for Wednesday´s game in Prague."
