Stephen Kelly

Kelly captained Ireland for the friendly international against Uruguay in Dublin back in March 2011, yet he heads into Euro 2012 as a back-up option for coach Giovanni Trapattoni.

The emergence of Wolves full-back Stephen Ward as first-choice right-back and the desire to include experienced Sunderland star John O’Shea on the left side of the defence means ex-Tottenham defender Kelly is likely to be spending much of his summer watching the action from the bench.

However, this affable Dubliner has the kind of calm and patient temperament required to assume a waiting brief and if he is called upon at a moment’s notice, he should do a solid job. 

Kelly heads into this tournament having seen plenty of first-team action for Fulham this season, with his form improving as the Premier League campaign progressed.
