Shay Given returned to individual training with Ireland on Monday and insisted his fitness for Euro 2012 is not in doubt.
Given was unable to train last week after jarring his right knee and was forced to fly to London to see a specialist.
But after concerns the 36-year-old could be forced out of Giovanni Trapattoni's 23-man squad the Aston Villa goalkeeper has moved to quash those fears.
He is now set to rejoin the rest of the group in midweek and will be fit to take his place in the side for Monday's warm-up match against Hungary.
Given said: "I just hurt my knee in training and had a bit of a reaction, that was all. If the Euros had started on Saturday I think I could have played, so I'm not worried.
"Obviously I'd love to be training every day and have been playing because I don't like missing any games, but sometimes you have to listen to your body. I hadn't trained, but I would have played. The specialist and the doctor felt it was just better to rest it for a few more days and then I'll be 100%.
"The specialist was happy with the way things went on Thursday. I'll probably train in the middle of the week. It's just a knee problem. The scan was fine, so there's just a bit of swelling and stuff. There is no major problem with the ligaments or anything."
Trapattoni said: "He has a little bit of pain. He wished to make training but we advised him to stay quiet. It is no problem. He wants to do training but it is better that he rests."
While Given is on the road to recovery, Darren O'Dea sat out Monday's session with a slight thigh muscle strain
"He has a little bit of pain. He wished to make training but we advised him to stay quiet," Trapattoni said. "It is no problem. He wants to do training but it is better that he rests, so tomorrow he won't play."
