Martin O'Neill Delivers The News That No One Wanted To Hear

Confirmation has finally arrived that Ireland will take on the world champions tomorrow without Seamus Coleman.

While it was already anticipated that he would miss tomorrow's game, Martin O'Neill was bullish about the prospect of him being ready for Sunday's game in Poland.

Seamus had a day off because he’s worked exceptionally hard over the last couple of days. He’s done really, really well but he will not be in the game, but I expect him to be fully ready for Sunday.



Ireland have had numerous injury problems this week. Ciaran Clark is already ruled out, while Marc Wilson is also understood to be doubtful. Having not kicked a ball for a while, Aiden McGeady is unlikely to be selected.

Glenn Whelan and James McClean are both suspended but the good news is that Wes Hoolahan did train today while Coleman's deputy, Cyrus Christie, is looking likely to be fit to face the world champions.


Wes trained today and he was fine, really fine. Cyrus obviously wants to play and he’s very keen to do so, and he’s fine. The physios have done a little bit of work on his and he’s ready to go

As Roy Keane informed us, Robbie Keane is incapable of breastfeeding and thus was spared the task and allowed train for Ireland.
