Slovak So Good for Trap: Manager Sticks With Same Team

TRAP is not for turning. The Irish manager is going to do things his way and will look for a response in Slovakia from largely the same team who saw action against Russia.

Giovanni Trapattoni has resisted the calls to change his starting eleven for tomorrow night’s clash in Zilina, a game that has taken on vital importance in Ireland’s quest for Euro qualification.

Shane Long replaces Kevin Doyle but otherwise it’s as you were with a doubt over the inclusion of Liam Lawrence.

Paul Green retains his place in midfield despite the criticism he received for his performance on Friday night.

Lawrence has a slight muscular injury and Keith Fahey is on stand-by.

Republic of Ireland:

Given, O’Shea, Dunne, St Ledger, Kilbane, Lawrence or Fahey, Green, Whelan, McGeady, Long, Keane.
