Trap sure all the squad's little knocks will clear up
GIOVANNI Trapattoni says he has no worries about the walking wounded in the Ireland camp even though there are injury concerns over some of his key men.
Ireland had their first full training session in Malahide yesterday as the Premier League players hooked up with their team-mates who had been earlier arrivals - players from Championship clubs and those carrying an injury came in ahead of schedule last week.
Robbie Keane and Glenn Whelan weren't there for training: Keane, the subject of a weekend injury scare due to a hamstring problem, was only due in from Los Angeles today while Whelan was given an extra day off as a wedding present -- he got married in Dublin on Saturday.
John O'Shea worked away quietly in the gym due to his knock while Kevin Foley and Keith Fahey were put through their paces by the medical staff, but Trap believes that his crocked stars will come through.
"We have the news, the scan in the US is not bad and we wait for confidence for him," Trapattoni said of Keane.
"John O'Shea has a little bit of a knock, but it's no problem, on Monday he can start training. He said to me he will be fit for the Bosnia game, he said to me it's no problem. He just worked in the gym, it was important not to overwork him.
"Foley and Fahey trained separate but we have confidence about their injury and I think in two or three days they can be ready."
Keith coy on Baggies deal
KEITH ANDREWS says he has put his club future on hold and is reluctant to sign a new contract with West Brom.
Dubliner Andrews joined the Baggies on a short-term deal from Blackburn Rovers in January but that will expire next month and while the club -- who are without a manager since Roy Hodgson's exit - want to keep Andrews on and have offered him a new deal, he's in no rush to sign until a new boss is appointed.
"I'll just concentrate on Ireland now, what goes on over there my advisor will sort out," said Andrews.
"I'm kind of waiting to see who is appointed before committing but I'm happy there and all being well it will get sorted out in a couple of weeks.
"Yeah, they've offered me a deal and I'm happy at West Brom but I'm a little bit hesitant until a new manager is announced," added Andrews, who denied that he's holding off on signing at the Hawthorns to see if he can earn a better deal after the Euros.
"No that's not the case, I'm happy there. I'm just waiting until it gets going.
"If a manager gets the nod, he's going to have to want me as well, that will have a major bearing."
