John O'Shea has declared himself fit and ready to play for the Republic of Ireland at Euro 2016.
O'Shea has been struggling with a calf injury in recent weeks and there were fears that he would not be ready for the finals in France.
Sam Allardyce's decision to name O'Shea amongst his Sunderland substitutes in recent games has done little to ease the worry surrounding the defender, but O'Shea insists he is fully fit.
"There are no problems, I am fully fit and raring to go," O'Shea told the Irish Star. "That injury is fully cleared up."
O'Shea admits he is frustrated by his lack of game time but he understands why the manager has opted to leave him out of the team.
"The only thing now is a little bit of frustration in not playing for Sunderland at the moment," he added.
"But it's one of those things that the manager spoke about when he came to the club. He said that whatever situation occurs and someone gets into the team and does well, then they will stay in the team.
"That's why the frustration has grown for me when I'm not playing. But the boys Younes Kaboul, and Lamine Kone have struck up a good relationship and they've kept a few clean sheets."
