Dunne sits out training as Keane returns

September 1, 2010

Republic of Ireland captain Robbie Keane was able to train properly on Wednesday before flying out to Armenia.

The Tottenham striker, who trained wearing a knee brace on Tuesday, completed the session at Malahide without the support.

Richard Dunne again sat out training with a muscle injury, while he was joined on the sidelines by Darren O'Dea, who underwent a scan on a sprained knee on Tuesday.

However, both men are to travel with manager Giovanni Trapattoni optimistic that Dunne in particular will be able to resume training ahead of Friday night's opening Euro 2012 qualifier in Yerevan.
