Sunderland defender John O'Shea will meet up with the Republic of Ireland squad as scheduled after undergoing a scan on Sunday night.
Manager Martin O'Neill admitted after their 1-0 home defeat by Manchester United, during which O'Shea limped off before the break, that the 31-year-old could be a doubt for the Euro 2012 finals.
However, the Black Cats have confirmed that O'Shea will join up with the rest of Giovanni Trapattoni's Barclays Premier League-based players to start preparations in Malahide on Sunday.
