Calf worry for Keane

Captain sits out training

Robbie Keane has emerged as a serious doubt for Euro 2016 due to a calf injury.

The Republic of Ireland skipper will not feature in Tuesday's final warm-up game against Belarus and it remains to be seen whether he will be included in the final 23-man when it is announced before the 11pm deadline.

Keane damaged a calf muscle on Saturday and had to watch from the sidelines as the rest of the Ireland squad were put through their paces at Turner's Cross on Monday evening.

Confirming Keane's absence, manager Martin O'Neill said: "We did some training on Saturday morning and he felt his calf at the end of training, so we're just taking it on a daily basis.

"He won't play tomorrow night in the game. I don't think it's worth risking that. But he is, as he says, a quick healer so we'll see how it goes."

When asked if Keane would make the Euro 2016 squad, O'Nell added: "I couldn't say at the moment, but I think he's pretty hopeful.

"He had it scanned and it's hopefully not too serious, but enough to put him in jeopardy for a while, so we'll see how it is. He had an injection this morning and we'll see how it is when it settles down.

"First of all, I'll get a better update when another 24 hours pass. He had an injection this morning, so he wasn't going to participate in any training today anyway. I'll see how he is."

Harry Arter is also set to sit out the Belarus cash after limping out of training on Monday.
