Irish release five for Uruguay match
Republic of Ireland coach Giovanni Trapattoni has rewarded his senior players for their efforts in last night's 2-1UEFA EURO 2012 qualifier victory over Macedonia by sending them home.
Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Doyle was due to undergo scans today on the medial ligament he damaged last night with initial examinations suggesting his domestic season could be effectively over.
However, despite dispensing with the services of he and Keane, after losing Leon Best to injury earlier in the week and with Jon Walters not now joining up after the birth of his son, Trapattoni is yet to call up any replacements.
He has, however, put Celtic's Anthony Stokes and CSKA Sofia's Cillian Sheridan on stand-by.
