Andy Reid has been withdrawn from the Ireland squad for the trip to Poznan to play Poland on Tuesday because of a hamstring injury.

Redi has returned to Nottingham Forest after suffering the injury during training this morning.

Meanwhile, defender Joey O'Brien underwent a scan on a hamstring injury today.

The West Ham defender felt the problem during the warm-up to Friday night's 3-0 friendly victory over Latvia and sat out training in Malahide on Saturday morning.

Manager Martin O'Neill said: "He's going for a scan. We are not sure.

"He just felt a little bit last night in the warm-up, so even though there was an opportunity last night to play him, we wouldn't have done so just because there might be some risk, so he is going for a scan later on.

"It's his hamstring. He just felt a little bit sore and it is just precautionary. But he wasn't too bad."
