Trapattoni handed major World Cup boost as Marc Wilson to make comeback

IRELAND manager Giovanni Trapattoni handed a timely boost after Tony Pulis confirmed Marc Wilson could soon be available for Stoke City after recovering from a horrific leg break.

The Republic of Ireland international, who sustained a broken fibula in October, has finally finished his rehabilitation. He should be available for next month's crucial World Cup qualifiers against Sweden and Austria.

Wilson catapulted himself into the position as Ireland's first-choice full-back ahead of Stephen Ward and Greg Cunningham with a commanding display against the Faroe Islands last October. He capped that display with a stunning first half goal.

Pulis confirmed that Wilson could be available for Stoke's trip to Craven Cottage on February 23.

"We have a break now where we can rest one or two of the players up for a little while, and the ones who we are trying to get back can step things up, which is fantastic for us," Pulis told the official club website.

"We are looking to stage a couple of friendly games over the next week or so to give players like Marc (Wilson) and Brek(Shea) a chance to step up their fitness.

"If they do that, then they will definitely come into the equation for the Fulham game; there is no doubt about that."
