Second full training session for Robbie Keane

Encouraging signs as captain continues recovery from injury

Robbie Keane played a full part in training for the second day in succession at Abbottstown as he continues his recovery from injury.

The Republic of Ireland skipper and record goalscorer had been troubled by a calf problem but could now be fit for the game against Sweden at the Stade de France next Monday.

Keane had been expected to feature in the warm-up defeat to Belarus a week ago, but was ruled out after injuring his calf in training.

The injury cast doubt over his inclusion in the final squad for the Euro 2016 finals, but manager Martin O'Neill named him in his final 23 last week, with keane himself saying that he was hopeful of being fit in time for Ireland's opening game against Sweden on June 13th.

However, while there was good news regarding Robbie Keane's prospects, fellow striker was forced to miss another session due to an Achilles injury.

The Stoke striker trained in the gym but was unable to take part in the full squad session along with midfielder Robbie Brady who continues his recovery from a back spasm suffered at the weekend.
