Trap changes nothing

Last updated : 27 August 2009 By Paul Jennings
Giovanni Trapattoni has ignored the claims of Irish midfielders Chris McCann, Andy Reid and Keith Fahey over the clubless Liam Miller. Trap had claimed McCann only touched the ball four times against Manchester United when questioned in England while over at a match. This was proved to be innacurate as McCann played 21 passes completing 19.

The squad has no changes but that is not suprising given the Italians stuborness.

Republic of Ireland squad:

Shay Given (Manchester City), Keiren Westwood (Coventry), Joe Murphy (Scunthorpe);

John O'Shea (Manchester United), Kevin Foley (Wolves), Richard Dunne (Manchester City), Stephen Kelly (Fulham), Kevin Kilbane (Hull), Eddie Nolan, Sean St Ledger (both Preston);

Aiden McGeady (Celtic), Damien Duff (Fulham), Darron Gibson (Manchester United), Glenn Whelan (Stoke), Keith Andrews (Blackburn), Liam Miller (Unattached), Stephen Hunt (Hull), Andy Keogh (Wolves), Liam Lawrence (Stoke);

Caleb Folan (Hull), Kevin Doyle (Wolves), Robbie Keane (Tottenham), Shane Long (Reading), Leon Best (Coventry).
