The striker has been charged with assaulting Ballyfermot Elvis impersonator Anthony Bradley, 42, during an alleged row about a spilled drink, at Buck Whaley's, on Leeson Street, on June 8 last year.

Today, at Dublin District Court a book of evidence was served on him by arresting Garda Noel Gibbons.

Judge Michael Walsh told the footballer that he was now being returned for trial to the Dublin Circuit Criminal Court where he is to face his next hearing on October 10 next - the day before Ireland face Gibraltar in the European qualifiers and four days before the trip to Germany.

Stokes, brought back into the Ireland squad under the new management team of martin O'Neill and Roy Keane after being ousted by Giovanni Trapattoni, will now miss both games.
