Andy Reid has withdrawn from the Ireland squad with a hamstring injury.
The Nottingham Forest midfielder suffered the problem in training on Saturday morning after coming on as a substitute in the previous night's 3-0 friendly victory over Latvia.
A spokesman for the Football Association of Ireland said: "The Football Association of Ireland this evening (November 16) confirmed that Andy Reid has withdrawn from the squad and has returned to his club due to a hamstring strain suffered this morning in training."
Reid was among a series of players being assessed on Saturday with West Ham defender Joey O'Brien due to have a scan on a hamstring problem and Sean St Ledger also a doubt for Tuesday night's trip to Poland.
