KEANE FIT FOR TRAP'S SWANSONG?

Trapattoni under intense pressure to stand-down
Robbie Keane will be back to start for the Republic of Ireland when they take on the Faroe Islands in their World Cup 2014 qualification game on Tuesday evening.

Keane will again captain Ireland after he recovered from the Achilles injury that kept him out of Friday’s 6-1 humiliation at home to Germany.

The 32-year-old LA Galaxy striker has had an injection to ensure he can start the game at the Torsvollur Stadium in Torshavn.

Under-pressure manager Giovanni Trapittoni has made two other changes with Manchester United youth player Robbie Brady starting along with Stoke’s Marc Wilson.

Keith Fahey and Stephen Ward are the two to miss out to Brady and Wilson, while Simon Cox makes way for the returning Keane.

I thought Keith Fahey was having a good game in midfield against Germany, we were 2-0 down when he was taken off.

Still, its great to see Man Utd youngster Robbie Brady start against The Faroe Islands, the boy has got real talent.

I don't think Trapattoni should be sacked, we were missing several players against Germany: Richard Dunne, Sean St. Ledger, Glenn Whelan and Robbie Keane.

Germany had 8 shots in the game and the scored 6 goals, freakish statistics.

Lets hope for a big win against The Faroes.


Republic of Ireland team to play Faroes Islands: Westwood, Coleman, O'Shea, O'Dea, Wilson, Brady, Andrews, McCarthy, McGeady, Keane, Walters.
