Stephen Kenny Taken To Hospital In Sweden After 'Becoming Unwell'

Ireland under-21 manager Stephen Kenny is in hospital in Sweden after he began to feel unwell on Wednesday.

Kenny's young Ireland side beat Sweden 3-1 in a European Championships in Kalmar on Tuesday evening.

The 47-year-old is expected to be released from care in the coming days.

A statement from the FAI on the matter reads:

Republic of Ireland Under 21 boss Stephen Kenny has remained in Sweden after becoming unwell on Wednesday as his squad made their way home from Tuesday night’s European Championship qualifier in Kalmar.

Stephen was examined by the FAI’s medical staff and decided to stay behind for treatment at a local hospital. Stephen expects to be discharged in the coming days and is looking forward to beginning preparations ahead of the two European Under-21 Championship qualifiers next month.
