Leeds United midfielder Paul Green will miss tonights friendly with England after suffering a hamstring strain in training.

The Republic of Ireland international will now miss the chance of playing at Wembley and will also miss all of Ireland's summer games.

Due to his injury, Green will not be included when the Republic of Ireland face Georgia or the Faroe Islands. He will also miss the chance to play European and World champions Spain when Ireland face them in a friendly in New York.

The 30-year-old has previously made 14 appearances for his country, scoring his only international goal against Algeria in 2010.

Giovanni Trapattoni has replaced Green with Hull City's Stephen Quinn, who could be in line to make his senior international debut.

The 27-year-old has made nine under-21 appearances, scoring once in a 3-2 victory against Sweden in 2007.

Former Leeds players Robbie Keane and Darren O'Dea are also in Trapattoni's squad for the friendly tonight.
